From sea to shining sea, on every plain and foothill, leaders in every community will stand together and have FUN OUTSIDE as part of the Children and Nature movement’s month long youth-led initiative!

As you know, my own family recently had a terrific time at a local Wild Zone. Now I am thrilled to help support such a wonderful opportunity for kids to enjoy the outdoors once again in my native Oakland, California:

Family Play Day in the Wild Zone
April 2, 1-4 pm
PAL Camp, Skyline Blvd, Oakland


Family Play Days are opportunities for children, teens and adults to play creatively together in nature. Activities include: building forts and fairyhouses, making sculptures from natural materials, playing in the mudpit, digging holes, balancing rocks, and inventing games in a beautiful natural area. These types of play were loved by previous generations but are rarely experienced by kids today. For more information: www.wild-zone.net.
Directions: The PAL Camp on Skyline Blvd. is located between Roberts Regional Park and the Chabot Space and Science Center. Enter through Chabot’s overflow parking lot. Click for the map!
Local sponsors and partners: Police Activities League (PAL), Children in Nature Collaborative (CINC), Wild Zones, Outdoor Afro, Bay Area Wilderness Training and Oakland Parks and Recreation.
Let’s G.O.! is an initiative of the Children and Nature Network’s Natural Leaders Network, in partnership with REI, The North Face, U.S. Fish and Wild Life and Sierra Club.
