Community Friends Program
Nearby Nature believes that everyone in our community should have the opportunity to discover, learn, and grow in nature nearby. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, whether or not you own a car, or what your family looks like. Everyone needs nature.
With this in mind, we started a new program in December 2013 called the Community Friends Initiative. Here’s how it works.
- First, you decide you would like to support a family in need.
- Second, you purchase a Nearby Nature Community Friends gift membership.
- Third, Nearby Nature gifts this membership to a low-income family from within our program participants (or we donate it to a local service organization that can identify such a family for us).
- Last, and most importantly, a family in need gets to participate in our nature programs for free or at lower cost for the next year.
With a Nearby Nature membership, a family can attend our Weekend Nature Quests and Green Start programs plus our Haunted Hike for free — a $50+ value! Members also get discounts on No-School-Day Adventures and Summer Daycamps.
So how can you help make healthy outdoor adventures accessible to every family in our community? Click on the icon below to make your donation today!
