The mission of Families in Nature is to connect children and their families to nature and to each other through time spent learning, playing and volunteering outdoors.

Families in Nature (FiN) is a federally tax exempt 501c3 non-profit organization and we strive to engage families of all backgrounds with children of all ages. FiN is in its 8th year as an outdoor education program and is currently serving families with children ranging in age from 4 months to 17 years old, with interns in college and beyond. FiN activities are aimed at teaching children and their parents about ecology and conservation through hands-on experiences in nature, while they spend quality family time together. The activities include nature walks, field science experiences, service projects, camp-outs, lessons in outdoor skills, S.T.E.A.M. aligned lessons and more. Each activity has time for learning and time for playing outside. It is amazing what a group of kids (and parents) will come up with when they have unstructured time outside together.
