NatureBridge has access to four different national parks and connects 35,000 kids and 600 schools to them each year. “One teenage student was so moved by NatureBridge’s work, after her experience she went and created her own outdoor based learning program in New Mexico,” said Annie Schuler, Creative & Communications Director. We know that NatureBridge’s programs are successful because of stories like this. People going through the programs, being changed, and helping others access the programs or making their own programs. “Different people also help NatureBridge with small things like weeding in public gardens, beach cleanups, and collecting specimens for research classes. Many people have said that just that changes them, knowing that they can help out, have fun, and learn,” said Phil Kilbridge, President and CEO.
We believe that NatureBridge is an amazing organization. The problem that our country has is that kids would rather be inside than outside and do not have the funds to explore nature. We should care about this problem because if kids grow up without seeing the great outdoors, they will raise their kids the same way. This cycle will go on and on. NatureBridge is working to fix this problem. NatureBridge connects 35,000 students and 600 schools each year to nature. We hope you vote for NatureBridge because we believe this is an important topic.
Jordan and Noah are 7th graders at The Brandeis School of San Francisco. As part of their 7th grade curriculum, they researched and advocated for NatureBridge to their classmates to get NatureBridge nominated for a donation from their school. "We chose NatureBridge because we have both had amazing experiences in their programs." —Jordan
