The Youth in Nature Partnership

Purpose

The Youth in Nature Partnership is a collaboration of non-profit and governmental organizations committed to increasing opportunities for youth to spend time in nature. Each organization of YINP brings unique resources and perspectives to help reconnect children with nature. From nature education to just having fun, YINP values how nature can inspire and teach children.

Why We Collaborate

The partners are concerned about the decline in children spending time in nature. Each organization brings unique resources and perspectives to the partnership and creates opportunities to reconnect children with nature. From nature education to service learning to just having fun, we all value how nature can inspire and teach children.
