CURRENT GOALS:  We are working to GROW our capacity to bring more children into nature connection, outdoor learning and stewardship in our community. To do this we will need funds to: 

  • Provide more scholarships

  • Raise funds for transportation

  • Offer more bilingual programs

  • Staff hiring and training

  • Subsidize school-based programs

  • Design and offer Teacher Workshops –  meaningful outdoor learning for your class

  • Build a loaner gear library for participants, including outdoor clothing, backpacks, and other gear

  • Cover the cost of program materials like compasses, nets, knives, etc.

If we don’t provide opportunities for children to love nature, how can we expect them to grow into adults that will conserve nature?
