Yours to explore

Skip, stroll, swing, ski, surf … these are just a few of the ways you can experience the land you’ve helped us protect in the past year. From a seventh-generation dairy farm in New Hampshire, to an elevated trail high above Chicago, to a wave-tossed stretch of the California coast—and dozens of parks, forests, playgrounds, and gardens in between—your support changed the way people connect to nature in communities across the country.

We couldn’t do any of it without you. Got a spare moment to celebrate with us? Check out our slideshow of 31 places you made a difference in 2015.

As we look ahead to a busy 2016, we need your support more than ever. There’s no better time to give: our Year-End Matching Gift Challenge has been extended through December 31. We hope you’ll take advantage of this opportunity—and double the impact of your support!

Create Climate-Smart Schoolyards

Rising temperatures, bigger storms, and asphalt schoolyards pose significant risks during recess. Urge Congress to prioritize schoolyards that cool neighborhoods, manage stormwater, and provide opportunities for kids to connect with nature today!
