The first Newton Parks and Recreation Backyard Campout runs this weekend, July 24-25. The Great American Backyard Campout—a program organized by the National Wildlife Federation—is a celebration of camping as a way to connect with nature and wildlife. The benefits of outdoor play for mind, body, and spirit are well-documented and create a lasting connection to nature and wildlife that help promote happiness and good health. The mantra for this year’s National Parks and Recreation Month is “We are Parks and Recreation.”
