Why Children and Nature?
Because children are healthier, happier and smarter when they learn in nature and play outdoors!
San Diego Children and Nature (SDCaN) was organized in January 2009 by individuals and educational, environmental, business, and community groups with shared concerns that today’s children have fewer and fewer opportunities to experience nature. Over 60 organizations are working together to preserve opportunities for San Diego’s children to learn in nature and play outdoors. In September 2015, SDCaN became a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. And we invite you to contribute to SDCaN–please CLICK TO DONATE NOW!
SDCaN organizes a general meeting every two months, and notices are sent to members in email messages. We invite you to join us for the meetings, to learn from others, and to share your opportunities and successes with Collaborative members and partners.
