We are excited for our favorite fundraiser of the year: Hike-A-Thon 2024! While we often hike with our students, this fundraiser increases that focus as we pledge to get out and hike each day of the week of May 6 through May 10, with a Community Hike on Saturday, May 11 from 10am to noon. We hope to encourage families and individuals to get outside and hike in their local woods and natural spaces while supporting our mission to foster a love of nature and to guide children toward healthy relationships with themselves and others.

This is an important fundraiser for our 501c3 nonprofit organization, and it allows us to host community events that connect neighbors with nature and each other.  If you’d like to join us on May 11 at 10 am for a Community Hike in Mt. Airy Forest, fill out this Pledge Form and let us know how many folks you’ll be bringing.

All donations are welcome and appreciated. Donations at the $100 level or above gets your business a social media shout-out and a beautiful print of forest-inspired art by one of our talented teachers.

Brink For a Cause! Thurs., April 25, 2024

We had a great time at Brink Brewing Co. in College Hill on Thursday from 5 to 10pm for a beverage supporting our mission of getting kids out in nature and fostering healthy relationships with themselves and others. Thank you to everyone who came!

Spring Into Mt. Airy Forest 2024

This was the first event of its kind that we have hosted. Thanks to a generous grant from Westwood Works, we enjoyed bubles, games, a Nature Scavenger Hunt, yoga and a plant ID walk with Liz Virgo, arts and crafts with Team Thoms and Westwood Grows, and so many friends and family getting outside! It was a beautiful day full of great memories. Thank you to everyone who came and to all of our volunteers! We couldn’t do this without you!
