Our Goal

Provide youth and families in Lafayette with more access to nature and the outdoors!

CHANGING LIVES THROUGH A CONNECTION TO NATURE

 

Research shows that a connection to nature improves physical and social emotional health and wellbeing, increases academic achievement, and positively effects community engagement. Nature Kids wants all of these things for Lafayette youth. It is for this reason that we are working to:

-Connect youth and their families to nature and the outdoors through a continuum of pre-k to high-school, backyard to backcountry and family integrated environmental education and outdoor recreation programming

-Ensure all Lafayette youth live within a safe 10 minute walk to nature
