At Monmouth Conservation Foundation, our mission is to acquire, hold, preserve, and protect the farmland, open space, and natural habitat of Monmouth County, New Jersey. We protect the vital natural habitat so precious to our community. We expand parks and create new ones. And we inspire our youngest citizens to treasure the natural beauty that surrounds us.
Monmouth Conservation Foundation has launched a new program, Kids for Conservation, for Monmouth County preschoolers and kindergarten students.
Kids for Conservation educates children at a young age about nature, conservation, and the environment. The program incorporates conservation into school lesson plans. It instills a lasting appreciation of nature, the outdoors, and the importance of preservation.
Utilizing lesson plans provided by Monmouth Conservation Foundation, teachers guide students in creating projects that educate children, and their families, about conservation. Monmouth Conservation Foundation incorporates the project photos into a social media campaign, with the public voting for their favorite "Kids for Conservation."
At this time, Monmouth Conservation Foundation seeks donations for expanding Kids for Conservation. Our goal is to enroll more schools in the program and provide cash prizes to the winning classrooms for environmental learning. We also would like to partner with Monmouth Park Rangers and Naturalists for classroom visits and extended learning.

Thank you for supporting Kids for Conservation in beautiful Monmouth County! Now let's get outside!
