Have you heard about doctors prescribing nature and outdoor activities for their patients? Doctors know that spending time in nature relieves stress, combats obesity, and reduces asthma and ADHD in children. Join local healthcare professionals & GBCAN partners for a family friendly day of fun activities and educational opportunities.

The Greater Baltimore Children and Nature Collaborative (GBCAN) encourages partnerships and provides information to foster connections between children and the natural world. Recognizing that contact with nature is important for everyone, GBCAN focuses special attention on children, re-connecting them with nature and ensuring the well being of both.
