Giving Thanks for Mount Diablo this Thanksgiving Season

WALNUT CREEK, CA—According to a new report, The Path Ahead, “Today, kids spend less time outside than prison inmates, with the average child playing freely outside for just four to seven minutes a day.” This report, commissioned by the REI Co-op, notes that the average American now spends about 95 percent of their life indoors. It further reports that we are becoming an “indoor species” which comes with consequences: “Our health and well-being may suffer. And the less we value our outdoor spaces, the less likely we are to protect them.” As the famed English broadcaster and naturalist, Sir David Attenborough, said, “No one will protect what they don’t care about; and no one will care about what they have never experienced.” The findings of this report confirmed Richard Louv’s earlier groundbreaking work and documentation of “Nature Deficit Disorder” in our young, wired generations. The Path Ahead makes it clear that the long march indoors is not inevitable, and that we are at a crossroads. To counter this trend and give thanks for the Mount Diablo area this Thanksgiving season Save Mount Diablo (SMD), De La Salle High School (DHS), California State University, East Bay (CSUEB), and sponsor Progressive Asset Management (PAM) recently signed a Conservation Collaboration Agreement.
