On April 13, 2009, Governor Kathleen Sebelius issued an Executive Order creating the Kansas Coalition for Children in Nature (KCCN).  The KCCN was created to  foster Kansas youth’s appreciation, understanding and involvement with the outdoors.

“Kansas is blessed with an abundance of natural beauty and this coalition will work to make sure Kansas children experience all that our state has to offer,” Sebelius said. “Environmental education is the first step toward helping our children learn to protect and preserve our planet.”

The Kansas Coalition for Children in Nature (KCCN) will promote outdoor learning experiences and environmental education for the young people of Kansas and provide ongoing support for these endeavors.  A copy of the Executive Order can be downloaded below. 

Outside for a Better Inside was composed and sung by Kelley Hunt accompanied by Janeal Krehbiel and the Lawrence Children’s Choir.
