Your gift makes a world of difference
For many children, Wikipedia is the closest they will get to watching an animal in the wild, and the only trees they know are the ones still growing on city streets. The opportunity to explore nature and discover new worlds is limited to what they can find in their urban neighborhoods.
Even adults can grow disconnected from the natural wonders of our world. Caught up in the hustle and bustle of modern life, never separated from cell phones, computers or cars, it is easy to lose the awareness and gratitude that peaceful moments in nature provide to us.
But you can change that world.
Even a modest donation can help connect a child with nature, allowing them to escape the asphalt forest for one of trees, animals, imagination and discovery. Every dollar helps make a Wilderness Awareness School camp or youth program a reality for a child who longs for adventure outdoors—not just online.
You can also help Wilderness Awareness School expand its reach by funding training for teachers, park rangers, youth program leaders, and other adults with a passion for nature connection who want to share their wonder, gratitude and awe with children.
We currently have more scholarship requests than we can fulfill. With your help, we can reach more kids and give them hope for a positive future for themselves and the world.
