More Info

Research, and our common sense, shows that kids who spend more time in nature grow up to be happier adults.

On a global level, it is very clear that many of us have become disconnected from our personal and societal impact on plant and animal life. We are currently in a moment of awakening! People are waking up to the importance of connecting to nature, reducing our negative impact on biological systems, and learning to become more vibrant and empathic people. Our nature program for kids is a part of this growing movement of people focused on reconnecting us to nature and supporting this generation to grow up CONNECTED to life!

We need help making our programs accessible to families who cannot afford to pay the high cost of tuition (it takes a lot of time and energy to run a nature program well.) 

** Families of color will be prioritized in receiving scholarships in acknowledgment of the systemic injustices that impact accessibility.

Money Raised will be used to:

--Give a full scholarship and/or partial scholarship for our morning nature connection program (ages 4-8).

--Support one partial scholarship for the nature circle group (a weekend program for school age kids)

-Fund nature immersion days for a home daycare community in East Oakland. This group of children and families (the kids are mostly first generation immigrants) are very excited to collaborate with us and give their kids an opportunity to connect to nature. Many of the kids have only spent a day or two in green space their whole lives. We are working on creating a series of nature days for their group and need to pay for transportation, materials, and staff. 

***We will also be needing vans or a bus for this project. So if you have access to one and would like to let us use it to bring kids out to nature, let me know! 

Thank you for supporting our small, but mighty, effort to brighten our future by supporting our kids in growing up connected <3
