Check out the Fall Family Challenge!

The David Suzuki Foundation is starting up The Family Fall Challenge. This challenge is all about getting outside with your kids and having fun:
Starting September 16, we at the David Suzuki Foundation are staying outside for the Fall Family Challenge. We'll be exploring nature in our backyards and beyond, learning about how we're connected to the environment and how our actions affect it.

Join us, and you'll receive a month of weekly emails, each one containing a fun outdoor activity (complete with step-by-step instructions) as well as tips and ideas for exploring the outdoors with your family. We'll get up-close with aquatic ecosystems, explore biodiversity in our backyards, and even sprout some socks (yes, you read that right).
I've written before about how much I love being outside with my kids, and how good it is for them and me in every way - physical and mental - to spend time outside. This challenge is definitely one I will be taking part in!
