Preserving the outdoors

  • Kids gardening


Learn to appreciate, respect, and care for the earth we’ve been given.


Discuss the importance of being good stewards over our natural resources (see Genesis 1:28–30). With approval, conduct a preservation or restoration project, such as cleaning up litter, planting trees, or clearing trails at a campsite. This could be an ongoing activity any time the youth do anything outdoors. For example, if you are having an activity at a park, the youth could clean up garbage for 15 minutes before they begin.
