Pittsburg High School, Mount Diablo Resource Recovery, and Save Mount Diablo are building up the bench of future supporters for the beautiful and natural Mount Diablo area.Â According to a 2017 report, The Path Ahead, â€śToday, kids spend less time outside than prison inmates, with the average child playing freely outside for just four to seven minutes a day.â€ťÂ 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 â€śindoor speciesâ€ť which comes with consequences: â€śOur health and well-being may suffer.Â And the less we value our outdoor spaces, the less likely we are to protect them.â€ťÂ To help address such concerns, Save Mount Diablo (â€śSMDâ€ť), Pittsburg High School (â€śPHSâ€ť), and sponsor Mount Diablo Resource Recovery (â€śMDRRâ€ť) recently signed and then completed an educational and experiential Conservation Collaboration Agreement.
