Hello and welcome to this week’s Nature Tracks.
NH CHILDREN IN NATURE CONFERENCE OCTOBER 7: "OPENING DOORS TO HAPPIER, HEALTHIER LIVES"
If you're interested in finding ways to encourage kids and fami- lies to get outside and more involved with the natural world, plan to attend the New Hampshire Children in Nature Conference, "Opening Doors to Happier, Healthier Lives" coming Thursday, October 7, 2010, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at The Hanover Inn on the Dartmouth Green, Hanover, N.H. The ses- sion will showcase model proj- ects from the Upper Valley and Franklin area communities that are providing more opportunities for children, youth and families to be outdoors.
"We're excited about bringing people together to continue to exchange ideas and strengthen community efforts to connect children and nature here in New Hampshire," said Marilyn Wyzga, convener of the N.H. Children in Nature Coalition.
The event's keynote speaker will be Dr. Tory Rogers, Director of the Kids CO-OP of Maine Medical Center and a key figure in motivating children to get up, out and moving. The rest of the day will be filled with informa- tive workshops and networking opportunities that will provide participants with the resources, tools and knowledge to create communities that encourage everyone to spend more time out- doors. Workshops will include planning and developing school gardens, building community trail projects, Questing (using treasure hunts to explore communities), providing safe routes to play and school, encouraging recreation in all seasons, getting teens outdoors and into nature, creating nature playgrounds for early childhood, and more.
The conference will provide examples from around the state, while showcasing the exemplary efforts of the HEAL (Healthy Eating Active Living) initiative in the Franklin area and the Upper Valley. Workshops will provide a rich opportunity for conversation, motivation and collaboration, intended to inspire new initiatives that foster experiences in nature.
The registration fee for the work- shop is $45, which includes lunch and refreshments. For more infor- mation, visit http://www.bit.ly/nhchildren-

The New Hampshire Children in Nature Coalition is dedicated to fostering experiences in nature that improve physical and emo- tional health, increase under- standing of the natural world, and promote stronger connections to community and landscape. The coalition got its start in 2007, when people from health, educa- tion, community planning and environmental sectors came together at a series of events to launch a New Hampshire initia- tive to reconnect children with nature and encourage children and families to get outside and active in the natural world. Find out more about the coalition at http://www.nhchildreninnature.or g.
The "Opening Doors to Happier, Healthier Lives" conference and other N.H. Children in Nature Coalition events are made possi- ble in part by generous contribu- tions from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and The Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation
