Planning Nature Outings for Babies and Younger Children:
- Introduce your baby to nature. It’s never too early to get started. Listen to bird songs with your baby. Admire colorful flowers along with your infant.
- Read guidebooks and maps together. Make guidebooks and maps part of your family reading. You can point to pictures of animals and plants and repeat the names together with smaller children. As your child gets older, let them pick out their own books and read passages to you.
