“Why get families outdoors? Quite simply, nature is good for us. Evidence shows that it is important, healthy and fun for children to have frequent and varied opportunities for play outdoors — and especially outdoors with natural vegetation — as part of their everyday lives.”

-Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature Deficit Disorder


Tarrytown is nestled in the heart of the Hudson Valley, an area rich with natural beauty. We are surrounded by parks, farmland, and forest just waiting to be explored. And as the quote above suggests, we are learning more every day about how good it is for children- and adults!- to get out in nature. Let’s go out together, beyond our backyards and playgrounds, into the wild woods.

This group hosts nature play groups for kids after school and weekend outings for families. Anyone with an interest in getting outdoors is welcome to join.
