Sponsor a child

Help us bring our programming to kids in need. All donations here go directly to offer spots to underserved kids in one of our programs and give the physical and mental healing benefits of time spent in nature to the most underserved kids in one of the most economically depressed areas in the country.

Build a Stage

Help us build a stage to host the endless imagination of the curious and emotional child. The kids of Red Oaks Forest School are raising money to build a stage because they love to write, direct and act out all the things they learn and feel. We are supporting this effort because the benefits are endless and the rewards are pure joy. Every dollar given here will support the building of our campus stage.

You cannot protect the environment unless you empower the people, you inform them, and you help them understand that these resources are their own, that they must protect them.
