apps, the project uses the power of media to encourage kids
to investigate nature in their own lives.
Recently inspired by the growth of the " outdoor prescription " movement (http://bit.ly/nrpaparkprescription), in
which medical professionals write prescriptions that encourage kids to get active outdoors, the creators of PLUM LANDING developed the " Explore Outdoors Toolkit " (http://
pbskids.org/plumlanding/educators/toolkit.html). This new
set of family-focused activities and media is intended to help
kids and families in urban environments get outside, get
moving and get into nature. Available for free on the PLUM
LANDING website (http://pbskids.org/plumlanding/), the
toolkit was funded by the National Science Foundation, and
researched and developed by WGBH and Education Development Center, in partnership with outdoor health and education programs across the country.
Not only does this collection of resources deliver the message
that nature is everywhere - even in the city - and that spending time outside can improve physical and mental health, it also
provides easily accessible, hands-on activities for urban families
to experience nature easily and effectively. The discovery that
outdoor science activities can be conducted with little preparation, in a short period and within walking distance of home,
can be highly motivating.

The 'Explore Outdoors Toolkit'
The toolkit can be used in a variety of settings: in afterschool
sessions or vacation camps, for weekly family programming or
for self-guided family fun. Since the activities are modular, parents and park staff can choose activities based on the available
time, outdoor space and seasonal or weather conditions. Although the resources can be integrated into existing programming, a comprehensive guide for starting a complete PLUM
LANDING Explore Outdoors program is also provided, with
tips and advice as well as promotional support materials.
Based on four environmental themes (water, weather, plants
and animals), the toolkit features:
* Hands-on activities that blend fun, science learning and
physical fitness, customized for use in three settings: afterschool programs for kids, outdoor family events and families
exploring on their own.
* 12 new animated webisodes featuring the PLUM LANDING characters that can be used to get kids excited and introduce them to the hands-on activities.
* Outdoor Family Fun with Plum (http://bit.ly/outdoorfu
napp), a free app (available for iOS, Android and Amazon
devices) that helps families build the habit of active, outdoor
nature exploration.

Brains. Beauty.
Choose both. Our Relay technology
continuously monitors the fill level and
weight of your containers, providing valuable
data to help you measure and improve
landfill diversion at a very granular level.
Efficiency is a beautiful thing.
