Children need healthy nature guided experiences

Laurie Seeman, Executive Director

Your support will help us to reach more children – and train more adults who can guide them outdoors. There is a growing demand for nature connection that needs to be met. Contributions of any size will make possible youth and facilitator scholarships, training materials, and mentorship programs. Please help to make the difference today. We thank you!
