The National Forum on Children and Nature (Forum) requests applications to administer a center with the primary task of conducting program evaluations of the Forums sponsored programs.Growing awareness of the benefits of nature contact and outdoor recreation has spurred programs and projects designed to increase contact with nature. The scientific justification for these initiatives is based on the emerging evidence suggesting a connection between nature exposure and health. One of the most exciting of these initiatives is the National Forum on Children and Nature, launched in June 2007, and housed at The Conservation Fund. More information on the Forum can be found at www.conservationfund.org/children_nature.
