Connecting children to the natural world is the heart of Riverbend’s mission. We believe nothing serves this purpose better than engaging kids’ minds, imaginations and senses through immersive hands-on programming. Our approach is simple: providing children with genuine opportunities to explore nature will add a necessary dimension of wellness in their lives. Compassion, creativity, self-awareness and respect are just a few of the qualities inspired by meaningful outdoor experiences. What’s more, children learn that they have the powerful ability to protect and nurture the natural world. It is these young nature lovers that will be tomorrow’s stewards of the earth.
