‘The Gift Of Green Time’ Encourages Families To Explore

This month, author Beverly Gillen is releasing The Gift of Green Time: 50 Ways for Families to Disconnect (and Reconnect) Outdoors – Door County. She’s a parent educator, college instructor and founder of Partners in Parenting Consulting, and she’s passionate about helping families discover the magic of nature and the benefits of spending time together outdoors.

“As a parent educator,” Gillen said, “I noticed how so many kids (and parents) were forgetting how to have fun outdoors. One of my family’s favorite spots in the world is Door County, so I decided to write a book that inspires today’s young and old to spend time together in this special place.”

Whether you’re the parent of pets, tots or teens, this handy guide will spur your imagination with 50 ways to share special time outside and enjoy Door County’s many facets.

A portion of book profits will be donated to Door County’s environmental nonprofits. To learn more or purchase a copy, visit
