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!

“If you raised all the children, we could turn it around in one generation.” -Joey L, parent

Strawtown Studio is honored to be awarded a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) grant for its community project called “InHabit Art”, with the youth and their leaders from the Haverstraw Center and Martin Luther King Multi-Purpose Center!
