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.
