Otter says kids have a 'nature deficit'

Butch Otter has declared June “Great Outdoors Month,” and said he’s troubled by a trend toward a “nature deficit” among young people who spend half as much time outdoors as children 20 years ago, and a lot more of their time on electronic media. Among the first events of the outdoors month is this Saturday’s free fishing day, when no fishing licenses are required in Idaho.
