About Us

We envision a society transformed by the positive impact of a new generation that understands, celebrates, and protects the natural world.


NatureBridge works closely with partners committed to connecting youth to nature and advancing environmental literacy. Our current partners include government agencies, nonprofit organizations, corporations, academic institutions, and associations. These organizations and  groups provide resources, support, and collaboration that are critical to meeting our mission.


Formed in 2010, ChangeScale is a collaborative of nonprofit leaders who work to support and advance the cohesiveness, effectiveness, and prominence of the environmental education field. Funded by the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. and Pisces Foundations through NatureBridge, the collaborative’s mission is to ensure that every generation has environmental know-how and is inspired to make the world a better place.
