People Learning About Nature Together

Our mission is to give kids time outside to connect with and learn about the natural world and our food systems. We hope to grow a community of students that will be stewards of our environment. This year we plan to get out on some hikes, and continue our work in the elementary courtyard including working in raised beds, expanding the pollinator garden, improving bird habitat, and also explore other topics that students are interested in. We hope that you will join us!
