New Baby?

Have a new little one and curious about taking them outside?

Check out all of our resources for new parents to empower you to step out the door and adventure with baby.



We believe that inviting families to play outside together is a powerful way to build community and foster a life-long love of nature.

This simple act is bigger than it seems. In gathering families to play and explore outdoors, we acknowledge their individual relationships with the natural world, and provide responsive and relevant resources and a supportive environment to nurture their own sense of belonging in outdoor spaces.

"I needed someone to tell me that I SHOULD go outside in nature, that fresh air would help me mentally, that walking with other parents would help so immensely. That the air outside was healthier than my stuffy house."

"Venturing out on a stroller walk with our newborn was an incredibly freeing experience. It was like we had collectively been holding our breath since becoming new parents, and getting out into nature allowed us to finally exhale and realize we could manage this new parent thing!"

"We found a place we belonged and realized how much we all thrived outside. It was the village every parent needs in their life and everyone was invited, even the kids that couldn't sit still or acted a little different."
