Austin has a ‘Children’s Outdoor Bill of Rights’ which was passed by the City Council in January 2017
Our guest was Ryan Spencer, the Manger for Children in Nature Collaborative of Austin (CiNCA). He also is Manager with the WESTCAVE Outdoor Discovery Center.
The Austin Children’s Outdoor Bill of Rights was developed with the help of dozens of community partners throughout Austin, all working hard to get more kids enjoying the great outdoors.
But what does the bill of rights actually do? It makes a promise that the city of Austin is dedicated to ensuring that all children have the right to climb trees, hike trails, ride bikes, gaze at the night sky, and so much more. You can view and sign the Bill of Rights on line.
