No Child Left Inside Coalition Reaches 500 Members

Today, the No Child Left Inside Coalition attracted its 500th member organization to help improve environmental educationby pushing for the No Child Left Inside Act.

The NCLI Coalition was formed only 18 months ago. Today, NCLI member organizations, including the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, represent more than 22 million Americans. These groups are focused on a variety of areas – the environment, education, outdoor recreation, businesses, public health and science. While they have different interests, they share a commitment to improving how we teach kids about their natural world.

This milestone comes at a critical time—the full House of Representatives is expected to vote on the No Child Left Inside Act of 2008 next week.
