Welcome to Green Hearts!

Bringing Children
 and nature back together

Green Hearts is a nonprofit conservation organization dedicated to restoring and strengthening the bonds between children and nature.

We believe that frequent, unstructured childhood play in natural settings is a crucial stage in the development of  life-long conservation values -- and thus helps lead to adult conservation behaviors.

This kind of "nature play" is now an endangered part of American childhood.  Green Hearts' mission is to help bring it back.

American children spend
27% of their time with electronic media. 

How much time do they spend outdoors?

Check out our 
Nature Play Factoids

for the answer!
