Discover the Forest is a new website launched by the Ad Council and USDA Forest Service encouraging kids to get outdoors and enjoy their nearby parks and national forests. The site is designed so tweens (ages 8-12) can navigate it and find the nearest park, activities to do, and discover neat nature facts. The Book of Stuff to Do Outside is a downloadable book with activities like identifying animal tracks, navigating without a compass, and the always popular scavenger hunt. The section Be Smart About Nature has links to learning about the monarch butterfly lifecycle, rainforests and more. Upload your child’s photo or drawing that captures their nature experience and enter to win a gift card from The North Face.
