We’re pleased to share the news that Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) has just launched Generation Wild, a multi-year, statewide campaign to get Colorado kids outside more often. Kids today are spending less time playing outside than past generations—averaging only 4-7 minutes per day in unstructured play.
Playing outside isn’t just fun, it’s also highly beneficial. Research has shown that children who play outside are happier and healthier. Plus, spending time in nature as a child helps you grow to appreciate the environment as an adult.
