Nearby Nature Milwaukee Fundraiser
October 1 - November 30, 2020
Nearby Nature Milwaukee is an environmental justice and equity project to build healthier communities in Milwaukee’s Lincoln Creek greenway, doing Youth Outdoors programs since 2018.
In neighborhoods with high poverty, Nearby Nature Milwaukee is seeing the effects of trauma in our young people. Research shows that time outdoors can reduce stress and improve physical health. Environmental education can also introduce youth to green careers and inspire them to a lifetime of outdoor stewardship and recreation.
