Immersive Experiences for Grade 5 Students and Families

Our Get Out In Nature experiences encourage and support family learning and adventuring in nature-based environments in coastal San Diego County and beyond. These half-day adventures also offer kids and their families an experience that opens the door to new and familiar outdoor spaces to connect with wildlife and the places they live. The goal is to help students and their families connect with and have fun while learning and exploring together in outdoor settings.

These memorable outings include nature hikes, moments for quiet reflection and nature journaling, wildlife investigation, and fun, hands-on engagements for the whole family. Each experience includes a Nature Collective adventure kit and guided nature-based activities. Get Outside In Nature locations vary, including exploring and learning about local plants, animals, and other wildlife that call San Diego County home.

Thank you, Escondido Union School District, San Diego County Parks and Recreation, California Fish and Wildlife, California State Coastal Conservancy’s Explore the Coast program and you. 

Your donations make experiences like these possible for youth and their families to grow their passion for nature.
