Children in Nature Collaborative


Children in Nature Collaborative is part of a global movement to increase equitable access to nature for the well-being of children. We are a regional network of environmentalists, park professionals, educators, pediatricians, artists, and community activists. Four key areas of work are leadership, relationships and culture, collaborative action, and meaningful support.

Actions include prototypes and programs in underserved urban communities to connect children with nature; collaborations to create nature-infused college courses for next generation early childhood educators and caregivers; development of tools to visualize the web of relationships, expertise, and interests that increase connections and new opportunities in the outdoors; and participation in leadership communities of practice.
