Nevada - Statewide
In January 2010, a group of agencies and community organizations came together to develop the Nevada Children’s Outdoor Bill of Rights, which is a tool to increase participation in outdoor activities, promote the health benefits of exercising and being outdoors, and connect children to nature. It features a list of outdoor activities that every child in Nevada would benefit from experiencing. The Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance Program of the National Park Service, in collaboration with the University of Nevada - Las Vegas Public Lands Institute, helped to develop the Nevada Children’s Outdoor Bill of Rights through youth focus groups and workshops of the Children’s Outdoor Bill of Rights Alliance, a partnership of more than 40 organizations.
