What is NatureHood?

NatureHood connects kids, families, newcomers, and marginalized communities to nearby nature.

Your NatureHood is any green space in your neighbourhood—from the biggest cities to the smallest towns. It’s nearby nature, whether it be the park at the end of your street, your backyard, a community garden plot, an overlooked urban forest, or a special green space in your community.

Your NatureHood is any place you go to ‘connect’ with the earth’s natural wonders—from watching a bee pollinate a flower, to feeding wild birds, to witnessing the trees change with the passing of the seasons.

Nature is waiting right outside your door.

The NatureHood program works with partner organizations across the country to address barriers to nature through programs, events, and activities built on exploration, celebration, education, stewardship, and nature observation.

Nature’s wonders are waiting, peeking through the sidewalk cracks. Get started!
