Boots For All

Greenplay Northwest is committed to improving access to nature for all young children and their families. Boots for All promotes outdoor play by connecting young children with quality outdoor and rain gear, an essential resource for infants, toddlers, and preschool-age children living in the Pacific Northwest.

We believe that time spent in nature – whether a walk down the street, to a neighborhood park, or local Arboretum – benefits a child’s physical, emotional, social, and mental well-being.

Our Boots for All gear library is open to the community by referral from social service organizations only. For more information or if you are a social service organization interested in partnering with us, please contact Heidi Wallace at heidi@greenplaynw.org.
