We need your help now, more than ever. In the midst of a global pandemic, kids are spending more time indoors, on screens, than ever before. Creating opportunities for safe, outdoor learning and social connection is desperately needed.
We have always believed that nature connection is a basic right, as essential as clean air or water. But we are recognizing that not every member of our community feels welcome in the outdoors. That’s why Whole Earth Nature School is committed to Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. We continue to provide scholarships to families in need (over $40,000 in 2019!). We are updating our hiring practices to ensure we have diverse leaders. We are creating special affinity camps to ensure that everyone knows they are welcomed here. And we have created the Justice Talks program among our staff to drive forward our effort to be a force for justice in our community.
But these things require resources. We can’t do them without you. We are relying on your generosity to lead us toward the day when every child can grow up feeling connected to the community of living beings on our planet.
