PBS KIDS and the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) have announced the annual Explore the Outdoors campaign, which encourages families to celebrate nature and the outdoors this spring.

Starting April 7, PBS KIDS kicks off Earth Month with themed on-air programming and online and mobile content.

Families will have the option to continue their explorations with their local PBS member stations and National Recreation and Park Association member park and recreation agencies by participating in fun educational outdoor activities in communities across the U.S.

NRPA members across the country (U.S.) and local PBS member stations are hosting events throughout the month with PBS KIDS Explore the Outdoors activities and materials.

The campaign will include eco-themed programming weeks from Wild Kratts and Arthur, as well as the premiere of “The Cyberchase Movie” and the launch of the new web-original Plum Landing.

Outdoor-themed episodes of a variety of PBS KIDS programs will also air on Earth Day, April 22.
