Our Vision: A World
in which all Children
Play, Learn and Grow
with Nature in their
Everyday Lives.

A collaboration of individuals and organizations working to connect Greater Cincinnati’s children with nature for their physical, mental and emotional health.


We want families to experience the joys of nature each and every day. You’ll find ideas for outdoor activities that you can do in your own backyard, as well as places to go and things to do in Greater Cincinnati.


Nature is a classroom rich with learning experiences. Educators will find support resources including outreach programs and field trips, lesson plans and self-directed learning ideas.


Everyone can play a part in the movement to reconnect children with nature. Take the pledge to get your own family outside and learn about ways big and small that you can take action.
