County seeking community input on outdoor activity


Larimer County Natural Resources and partners would like to hear your ideas about what can be done in your community to better connect families with nature and outdoor recreation. In a recent county-wide survey, roughly 75 percent of participants responded that they would like their children to spend more time in nature/outdoors than they currently do.

Come share your ideas at one of the upcoming Plug in to Nature community meetings.  Your input will form solutions to address a trend called “Nature Deficient Disorder” in which kids and families are not fully benefiting from all that nature has to offer. Bring your entire family. The meetings will be fun, interactive, and engaging by using games and instant polling to gather your input. There will be food and drinks, as well as activities for all ages. The meetings will be held in a variety of locations and times – choose to attend whichever one works best for you!

Larimer County Natural Resources is seeking to identify practical, community-based solutions to increase families’ time outdoors through Plug in to Nature, which is funded by Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO), and assisted by Design Workshop Inc.  Created by Colorado voters in 1992, GOCO receives up to 50 percent of Lottery proceeds annually, which it reinvests back into projects throughout the state by helping to preserve, protect, enhance and manage Colorado’s wildlife, park, river, trail and open space heritage.

Please take a few minutes to learn more about the project at the website, and share your thoughts at the upcoming meetings.
