“…Park staff and volunteers will have stations setup that will allow park visitors to do all of their Bill of Rights in one day whether it’s learning to fish or camping under the stars. Families will be treated to storytelling, seed planting activities, trail walks, s’more-making, and more!”
As outlined on parks.ca.gov – The Mission of The California Children’s Outdoor Bill of Rights is:
“To encourage California’s children to participate in outdoor activities and discover their heritage. “
“The Reason” for this initiative is based on the fact that “Numerous studies have shown that children who participate in outdoor activities are healthier, do better in school, have better social skills and self-image, and lead more fulfilled lives.”
Of course, with a destination like Angel Island in the picture, there are unlimited opportunities to make the fun activities outlined in the California Children’s Outdoor Bill of Rights part of a healthy lifestyle for the whole family to enjoy for many years to come.
