Through STEAM-based activities as well as community service projects, Nature Connection offers participants hands-on opportunities to explore nature and to develop their skills as scientists, artists, and community builders. Broadly, the program provides a safe, nurturing environment that enables children to cultivate innate positive qualities within themselves and to connect with the natural world around them.
