One Little Earth creates and funds stories and programs for young people that entertain, inform, and inspire a love of nature.

Kids who spend time outdoors are healthier, happier, and more creative. Being in nature invokes feelings of awe, peace and gratitude that build a sense of belonging and even a spiritual connection with the Earth.
