Curiosity, Wonder, Creative Play ... it's their nature.

Getting out in nature is fun and great exercise! Research shows that getting kids out in nature also leaves them feeling happier, reduces attention problems and supports their cognitive, physical, social and emotional development.

No Child (or Family) Left Inside
This website focuses on programs, events and resources that will help Loudoun families reconnect with the outdoors and embrace the national 'No Child Left Inside' movement pioneered by Richard Louv with his book, 'Last Child in the Woods: Saving our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder.'

We hope these tools will encourage you and your family to enjoy the wonderful opportunities that await outside and to use the excellent resources provided by LESA member organizations to enhance these adventures.
The Loudoun Environmental Stewardship Alliance (LESA) is a non-profit organization committed to helping families reconnect to Loudoun's outdoors.
