Nature Play

Imaginative play in nature is important for physical and emotional wellbeing.

You can make it happen!

Visualize an outdoor space where kids can explore, discover, imagine, and play in nature. We are dreaming of such a place, and you can help us make this dream a reality.

We are raising funds to create an outdoor Nature Play Area at the Los Alamos Nature Center that will encourage our youngest visitors to engage in unstructured play. ┬áNature play has been proved to bring all kinds of benefits to children–both mental and physical. ┬áKids are better able to pay attention, they learn healthy risk-taking, their imaginations grown, and their bodies are healthier when they play outside.

Please help us reach our goal of $20,000.
