Real Connection, Lifelong Joy

Get Kids Outside

Rooting youth in nature starts here. Play, adventure, and exploration in the outdoors enhances your child’s self-confidence, lowers stress,  builds confidence and a sense of belonging. And connection with the natural world tends to inspire a lifelong desire to take care of the land. 

We believe that all youth, regardless of race, class, or physical ability, should have access to the outdoors. We emphasize experiences that tap into the positive and transformative opportunities for wonder, joy, and learning in our amazing local natural landscapes. 

Let your child be transformed by nature!
