California is known for its beautiful and varied natural landscape, from deserts to forests to beaches, but there are so many kids who, despite proximity to such natural resources, have never gotten to experience them. On June 21, 2010, communities throughout the nation will take part in Summer Learning Day, a national celebration of summer learning programs. This is a great opportunity to shine a light on the much-needed opportunities summer learning programs provide for kids to learn through fun and engaging experiences in the natural wonders that are within their reach.
Visit the National Summer Learning Associate website, www.summerlearning.org/SLD, to learn more about Summer Learning Day, register your event and find resources to help you plan– including free webinars. Can’t join us on June 21st? You can hold your event anytime during the summer – just be sure to register on the Association website. And don't forget that July is Summer Learning Month in California.
