Review for The Nature Generation, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Nature Generation (formally the Newton Marasco Foundation) has invested in our next generation. Through Teach Green Programs and Read Green--NatGen connects with our nations youth . NatGen has reached out to thousands of kids in 2013.
What I love best is when a child meets one of our Award winning Green Earth authors and is inspired herself to read and write about nature ! Or when a city kid comes out on our nature trail and is touched by the magic and pure innocent beauty of a protected habitat . Or when a teacher thanks us for our electronic games that support her curriculum on energy and environment in a fun and imaginative way.
Or when a NatGen volunteer asks if they can offer us more time as one recently said 'my best day is a day working with kids and NatGens programs'.

Review for The Nature Generation, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am proud to serve on the board of The Nature Generation ( formally Newton Marasco Foundation). This nonprofit reaches youth across our nation, and has tailored environmental education programs for youth in the Greater Washington Region. From our nationally recognized Green Earth Book Award ( first in the nation to reward authors who write environmental stewardship books for children and young adults)`---- to our engaging environmental classroom games---- to our hands on habitat work---we are investing in the next generation of environmental stewards. Please join me in recognizing NatGen as one of the "Great 2012 Nonprofits".
