The ChariTree Foundation – Canada’s Environmental Education Charity for Children
Children need nature
“Let nature be your teacher.” The ChariTree Foundation creates and supports national and international nature-based environmental education programs for children and youth.
“Let’s give kids opportunities to fall in love with nature in order to protect it, because you protect what you love.”Andrea Koehle Jones, Founder, The ChariTree Foundation
These days many children have less time and fewer opportunities to connect with nature. This is a real loss because research shows that contact with nature makes kids feel better about themselves.
Based in Greater Vancouver, The ChariTree Foundation supports local, national and international children’s school and summer camp environmental education programs. It’s about getting kids outside more. Let’s ~ give them opportunities to learn, grow with nature, and contribute positively to their ever-changing world.
A ground-breaking outdoor learning charity
Millions of children are already impacted by climate change. There’s really never been a better time to teach kids that they can help make the world a better place.
If children are going to make a lifelong commitment to protect the environment for themselves and future generations, they first need time to explore the wonders of nature.
ChariTree’s climate change solution is simple. Firstly, we help support national and international environmental education programs for kids. Secondly, The ChariTree Foundation helps educate and empower children so when they grow up they can be environmental leaders better prepared to care for the planet.
