Local Organization Spotlights
Where’s the first place you connected with nature as a child? In a backyard tree? A park down the street? A neighborhood vacant lot? If you’re like lots of folks, your special place was close to home. Based in the green heart of our community – Alton Baker Park — Nearby Nature believes people of all ages, backgrounds, and communities thrive when they connect with nature nearby. From summer daycamps to family events to park caretaking projects, we've got programs for everyone!
Whole Earth Nature School
Whole Earth Nature School offers unique nature connection programs, utilizing an approach rooted in ancient knowledge, filled with real-life experience, and sprinkled with a touch of mystery. Nature Camp is more than outdoor play; we will transform the way you see the world.
Each skill and activity at Whole Earth Nature School has a positive effect on students’ emotional, physical, and mental well-being. We nurture students to become more connected to self, others, and the environment by giving them the support and freedom they need to flourish.
Nature mentors from Whole Earth Nature School will be on hand with a sampling of their nature collection to touch, examine, and discover.
