During this morning's engagement, Kate Middleton combined two causes close to her heart: the environment, and early childhood care. The Duchess visited Gilwell Park, to celebrate the site's 100th anniversary, and to learn about the U.K. Scout's new program for younger children.

Ever practical, Kate opted to wear a green jacket, a mockneck sweater from J.Crew, and black jeans for her day in the park. Her See by Chloé boots—and a scouting scarf—finished off the look.

The Duchess has been getting quite outdoorsy lately. In January, she stopped by a community garden to learn about the organization's work with children. She encouraged the kids to get into the spirit of the outdoors. "Do you all like learning outside?" she asked them. "There's so much to discover isn't there? It's really fun. If you haven't tried it, you don't know how cool it is."

That same day, it was announced that Kate was co-designing a "Back to Nature"-themed garden for the Chelsea Flower Show. She's been working with landscape architects Andrée Davies and Adam White to create an outdoor space that encourages people to get "back to nature," and "create new experiences in the great outdoors," according to Kensington Palace.

Davies told the Telegraph that Kate's been in touch with them almost every day as they work on the project. "[She] is very hands on, model making, emailing images, coming up with all the ideas that we want to capture," Davies said. "She would often bring a folder of cuttings with her full of ideas."
