BENEFITING: The Nature Conservancy
It wasn’t so long ago, when we were kids and summers were like a long, sweet dream. The world was our playground—every tree was a gym, every pond was the sea and every meadow was an adventure waiting to happen.
Moonrise Kingdom not only brings back those delicious memories, this priceless film reminds us how easy it is to find ourselves in the midst of a busy world. We step outside and we simplify, like when we were kids. Remember?! We get a little nature.
At The Nature Conservancy, we’ve been conserving the lands and waters on which all life depends for 60 years, for nature and people. We’ve seen how even a little bit of nature can make children happier, healthier and smarter.
With Leaders in Environmental Action for the Future, we provide high school youths with paid summer internships giving them conservation and leadership skills and a lifetime of outdoor memories.
Nature Rocks, a partnership with the Children and Nature Network and Disney provides children and families with easy and fun ways to connect with nature.

And in Rhode Island, we’re helping urban youths get involved with the outdoors, both in their own neighborhoods and at our preserves.
We work to protect waters and lands in all 50 states and in 30 countries. You can enjoy one of The Nature Conservancy’s preserves and you can explore nature in your own backyard. The point is: Do it. Step outside. Connect your children with nature. Reconnect yourself.
Get a little nature!
