Our vision is to bring public school students from elementary and middle schools in North Carolina and other states into natural areas near their homes and schools. Merging the energy of young students with the energy of these outdoor places sets the stage for deeply felt experiences that will bring a “backyard” presence to North Carolina’s Standard Course of Study, particularly in Science. Our vision is to create in children a life-long love of nature and to do this in a way that enhances academic achievement, inspires the joy of living, and plants an understanding of the interconnectedness of all things.
