For the study, a team of scientists enrolled 1,285 children aged 9 to 12 in North Carolina who took part in a survey which aimed to identify the types of activities that help kids build a strong connection to nature defined as when children enjoy being outdoors and feel comfortable there.

Kathryn Stevenson, the corresponding author of the study and an assistant professor in North Carolina State University's Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management, comments: “We have seen that when people who go into environmentally focused careers reflect on their lives, they describe having formational experiences outdoors during childhood, like walking on a favorite trail or exploring the creek by their home. We know that these kinds of meaningful life experiences are motivating going forward.”
