A new taskforce is developing a statewide plan to increase opportunities for children to engage in nature, both in school, at home, and on public lands. The taskforce is comprised of representatives from DNREC and the Department of Education, Nemours Health and Prevention Services, the Department of Health and Social Services, the Delaware Nature Society and numerous other state and federal agencies, and community partners.
No other coordinated effort currently exists to help battle Nature Deficit Disorder in Delaware. We want Delaware to be a leader in environmental literacy so we can help children reconnect with nature. We will lay a path back to nature for new generations; our children deserve nothing less.
Secretary Collin O'Mara
