You Can Make a Difference!

Even if you don’t have an “environmental” background, volunteering can help you connect, learn, and grow as you work with an amazing group of like-minded people to support those who nurture our planet!

Our mission is to build resilience, optimism, and hope in response to the impact of the climate crisis. 

We provide community-building programs that offer inspiration, self-care, and mental health support. Our programs are immersed in deep nature connection and designed to nourish positive ecological change.

Use your super powers, skills, and enthusiasm to support our organization and spread its mission!

  • Educational and Speakers Bureau programs: If you like presenting inspiring material to a diverse audience, consider joining our speakers’ bureau. Are you tuned into promotion? Consider promoting our programs and connecting with groups who’d benefit from our educational programs.
