Explore the Outdoors

Today, PBS KIDS and the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) announced the annual Explore the Outdoors campaign and partnership, which encourages families to celebrate nature and the outdoors this spring. Starting April 7, PBS KIDS kicks off Earth Month with themed on-air programming and online and mobile content.

“In honor of Earth Month, we are proud to partner with NRPA… to provide families with opportunities and resources to encourage the exploration of nature in their communities,” said Lesli Rotenberg, General Manager, Children’s Programming, PBS. “And through new content across platforms from favorite series ARTHUR, WILD KRATTS and more, PBS KIDS offers many ways for kids’ love of nature to blossom and bloom this April.”
