Conservation Kids

Providing children and families inspiration and knowledge to get outside, play in and explore nature - and ultimately become stewards of the environment and advocates for conservation.

Children often are told they can change the world, and these age-appropriate programs will help them do just that. Programs are designed in a series that take children on adventures from discovering nature to protecting it, giving them clear steps to take and opportunities to see the impact. Children and their adult companions will plant for pollinators, collect seeds to plant a forest, create their own wildlife habitat, serve as a naturalist for their classmates, help protect and promote wildlife, and so much more!*
