Green Adventure Project
Where kids & nature grow together
In 2009 Green Adventure Project was incorporated as a nonprofit to address the lack in young people's nature and science knowledge base and to increase their connection with the outdoors and their local environment. Research shows that children today:
Spend half as much time outdoors as previous generations.
Have limited scientific knowledge and skills, related to their local environments and the natural world.
On average, spend 53% of their time each week using screens.
Green Adventure Project's environmental education programs provide hands-on learning and transformative experiences which develop responsible citizens and foster a lifelong commitment to stewardship and sustainability.
Our science and nature based inquiry programs:
Give students the knowledge to make environmentally conscious decisions, enhance and extend classroom studies.
Allows for higher retention of new information and reinforcement of previous material.
Foster a student's sense of place, interconnection and stewardship with nature.
