The ChariTree Foundation - the Environmental Education Charity for Children

A ground-breaking Canadian charity

“Let nature be your teacher.” Canada’s ChariTree Foundation creates and supports national and international children’s environmental education programs.

Let’s give kids opportunities to fall in love with nature in order to protect it ~ because you protect what you love.

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.

ChariTree supports children’s school and summer camp environmental education programs. It’s about getting kids outside more ~ and giving them opportunities to learn, connect with nature and contribute positively to their ever-changing world.

Children and nature

Millions of children are already impacted by climate change so 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.

The ChariTree Foundation's climate change solution is simple. We help support environmental education for children now, so when they grow up they will be better prepared to #LeadOnClimate.
