AHS Comments on Passage of Every Kid Outdoors Act

As a member of the Outdoors Alliance for Kids, AHS President/CEO Beth Tuttle shared AHS’s position on Congressional passage of the EKO Act as part of the Natural Resources Management Act:

“The American Horticultural Society (AHS) applauds the passage of the Every Kid Outdoors Act, which will help bring the proven benefits of being in nature and the outdoors to millions more children and youth. This act will serve as an important accelerator for the AHS’s work with garden- and nature-based educators to nurture the next generation of plant lovers and earth stewards through regular encounters with the natural world and, ultimately, to create a happier, healthier, and more sustainable future for our citizenry. We are grateful to Congress for the bipartisan approach that led to this act’s passage.”
