Support Our Work


The Children’s Forest believes that every child deserves the opportunity to enjoy time outdoors. Time outdoors brings so many benefits including improving our quality of life, health, social wellbeing, and bringing joy into our lives. Every dollar that you invest in the Children’s Forest works towards making the outdoors more accessible and inclusive for children from underrepresented communities.
