Mission & Vision

Do children – do all of us – have a right to a meaningful connection to the natural world?


To connect young children and their families to the splendor of the natural world, through advocacy, education, and environmental stewardship.


We envision a world where all young children, as part of their community, culture, and experience, are given the opportunity to develop deep and meaningful relationships to the natural world.

What We Do

Greenplay Northwest is part of the growing local and national movement to reconnect children to the important spaces and wild places of their childhoods.

Specifically, we:

– Provide nature-based early learning opportunities for children ages 0-6 and their families.

– Support parents, early care providers, and educators in finding new pathways for change that support nature         connection at home, in the classroom, and beyond.

– Inspire community efforts to protect and advocate for their neighborhood green spaces, parks, and trails.
