Children In Nature Vision

Delaware will be recognized as a leader in environmental education for all of the state’s children. At school and at home, in parks, backyards and other outdoor spaces, children and adults will experience a multitude of ways to improve health and well-being and enhance life-long learning through encounters with and growing knowledge of the natural world. No child will grow up without having had a positive outdoor experience. All families will have access to green spaces. Children will reconnect with the natural world in meaningful ways and there will be no child left inside!

Children In Nature Mission

To improve environmental literacy, create opportunities for children to participate in outdoor experiences, promote healthy lifestyles and provide better access to green space through schools and community programs.
