Mission, Vision, and Goals

Mission. San Diego Children and Nature leads the regional movement to connect all children to nature by providing professional learning, and networking for educators, families, and communities.

Vision.  Our vision is a world in which all children play, learn, and grow with nature in their everyday lives.

Goals.  Six strategic goals have been established to implement the mission:

  1. Increase public awareness of the value of nature and outdoor experiences.
  2. Enhance schools’ ability to connect children to nearby nature.
  3. Partner with community groups to value, promote and provide opportunities for outdoor experiences.
  4. Drive changes in attitudes, skills and behaviors that lead to positive relationships with nature.
  5. Promote learning, sharing and networking.
  6. Build a sustainable organization to support our mission.
