Buy a Winter Wreath through City Nature Environmental Education!
Why? Because our annual wreath fundraiser supports our Summer Nature Day Camp program, where we strive to connect children to the natural beauty & ecology of Portland’s parks. At City Nature Environmental Education, we believe that connecting children to a park when they are young helps them care about parks as they get older.
Unfortunately, not all children can afford the cost of camp, so we raise money through our wreath fundraiser each December. All profits are used to bring children with very little access to nature to a week of Nature Day Camp. Partnering with schools and organizations helps us reach children in underserved neighborhoods. Sending a child to camp costs $240 - we provide buses, water bottles, snacks, and the staff.
You can help!
Buy a winter wreath through Environmental Education or make a donation to the project and help send a child to camp!
