The Natural Service Network

Natural Service Network Logo

The Children & Nature Network (C&NN) launched the Natural Service Network (NSN) in the Fall of 2010 to bring together individuals, organizations and agencies to inspire, cultivate and nourish a life-long commitment to nature-based play, recreation and the environment -- from neighborhood green spaces to community parks, national parks and other public lands. The NSN is a call for fun! Think of it as a party invitation, and the party location is all the green and living space around us. Community gardening, river clean-ups, trail maintenance, habitat restoration and people getting other people outside -- however and wherever you get outside to serve in nature, the NSN wants to hear about it and let others know what you are doing! Visit C&NN Connect to download the NSN Tool Kit and find out more. MORE +
