Your generosity is a gift of connection…
We give great thanks for the many ways you help connect kids of all ages with nature, community and self! For the past 30 years, your support has lifted the lives of thousands of kids throughout the world.
Will you help us celebrate our 30th Anniversary with your donation today?
In this season of thanksgiving, I feel honored to read the notes that accompany donations from our community — stories of the impact of programs you have attended, the hope you feel from the positive changes in your young people, and how the growth they find here ripples out into their daily lives.
Nate’s experience at WAS has been beyond measure. I feel it every time I go there — the sense of community, of welcoming, of being centered; self-awareness, but also other-awareness. Apart from the primitive skills and nature education, what WAS excels at is showing folks how to build a community and nurture deep connections with people that endure over time. My deepest gratitude to all who have been a part of his journey.
— Sherene Sturtevant, mother of Nate, Community School student
It’s a privilege to receive feedback like Sherene’s, reminding me of how truly transformative mentoring can be. Your support today will directly empower more students like Nate to develop deeper connections with nature, community and self, and become the next generation of stewards, mentors and leaders. Then, in a ripple effect, they’ll return to their communities and reach thousands more — inspiring healthy lifestyles for kids of all ages.
We give thanks daily for all you do to support nature connection. Please give more kids these opportunities they so greatly need this Holiday season by helping us reach our Fall Annual Fund goal of $125,000.
Warren Moon, Executive Director
P.S. Together, we have raised $53,131 toward our goal. Please send in your check or donate online today and help us reach our goal of $125,000 by December 31st!
