Getting Urban & Underserved Kids Into Nature

Published November 20th, 2015

In the past year, Wild Earth partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Newburgh and the Kingston City Schools to lead hundreds of urban and underserved youth into the woods. After a Wild Earth program, one of their teachers commented,

“I learned that my students have the ability to do more than I expected them to. That they can rise to the challenge when given the opportunity.”

Now in our 12th year of serving thousands of people in the Mid-Hudson Valley and beyond, Wild Earth is more committed than ever to our vision that every person from every walk of life has the opportunity to play explore and learn in nature and build strong connections to themselves, each other and the Earth.

You can make a big difference this year!

Our staff is intensely focused on bringing Wild Earth to underserved youth. Your generosity enables us to work with hundreds of children from urban communities like Kingston and Newburgh, bringing students into huge expanses of nature, many for their first time ever.

Your donation will increase the number of children who can experience Wild Earth and reap the benefits of time in nature.

Donate now and ensure every child has the opportunity to connect in nature.

When you donate, you are partnering with Wild Earth in creating a future where immersive nature-connection experiences are available to everyone.

No donation is too small.
