The Santa Cruz Kids in Nature Program is an
outdoor-based Nature Club for young children. We are a grass-roots program focused on fostering creativity, confidence, communication skills, community, ecological stewardship, curiosity, consent, and social justice ethics and advocacy in the students. 

The group takes place over the course of the school year and runs outside of school hours - making it a great activity for public school students. Please see our updated COVID scheduling to see what we offer for the online distance learner schedule.

​It is our priority to be accessible to all who are interested, so please inquire about our equal access scholarships.
