If you ask your someone what activities are available in their neighborhood or city, they may say “shop at the mall” or “go to the movie theater”. But there are so many things to do outside as well! This week, get to know your natural neighborhood!
First, print a map of your town.
Next, mark on the map the location of the your home.
Now find out what outdoor activities are available. Mark each of these on the maps as well. Some things to look for include:
- State parks
- National parks
- Local parks
- Bike trails
- Nature trails
- Public lakes or waterfalls
- Camping sites
- Outdoor recreational facilities
You can use this map as a reference to find the next place to explore!
