    Twitter party hosted by PBS Kids offers new ideas for exploring outdoors

     “Kids these days!” It’s a complaint as old as time.

    While there are times you will catch me saying the same thing (especially after seeing teenage girls walking around in yoga pants at school), I actually find a ton of hope in this generation of caring and conscientious children, particularly each year when we celebrate Earth Day on April 22.
