The nature education movement is redefining what learning looks like at school and in childcare settings. ERAFANS provides stellar nature-based training to educators and childcare providers to ensure that all children have safe, healthy, frequent, and meaningful opportunities for nature connection. But we can't do it alone - we need your support!
Your gift helps teachers (and children!) take learning outside. For example:
$25 provides a rain suit for a child in a Title 1 school attending our weekly Forest Days program.
$50 alleviates our transportation expense to visit a school or nature program for first hand mentorship, consultation, and training.
$100 allows us to offer a scholarship to a deserving teacher who wants to gain the tools and training to create a nature program in their own community.
$250 - $500 provides professional membership and training opportunities to nature based educators. We give partial scholarship aid for our Nature-Based Teacher Certification courses which are worth up to $500 and include annual membership.
$500 provides for the design and printing of teacher training materials, personalized to each program we offer.
And finally, our dream training center: One of our big dreams is to establish a destination property for educators to experience first hand what a robust outdoor education program can do. If this is a dream you would like to help us make a reality, let’s build a foundation together!
