“This is the kind of door-to-door, all-encompassing escort service that we adults have contrived to provide for our children. We schedule their encounters for them, driving them to and from one another’s houses so they never get a chance to discover the unexplored lands between. If they are lucky, we send them out to play in the backyard, where they can be safely fenced in and even, in extreme cases, monitored with security cameras.” -Michael Chabon

Following are some useful websites and resources about children and nature:

You can print off our Event Stamp Passport Card and journal to help your children track their progress in the passport program.

If you are interested in getting your child’s journal published on our website, or if you need help printing off materials please call us at 406.721.7275 or email us at parksrec@ci.missoula.mt.us and we will mail you one.

Parents — We are always looking for volunteers and helpers for our events. If you would like to join our mailing list please email Maria Berger at mberger@montana.com.
