The Nature Connection

Elder with herbs

The Nature Connection delivers educational and therapeutic nature programs to individuals with limited access to the outdoors - to nature. Though the use of fresh plants, live animals, and natural materials, The Nature Connection delivers monthly programs with themes based on the seasons, cycles, and connection to nature to: at-risk youth, individuals with disabilities, and elders, including those with dementia/Alzheimer's.

Volunteers join us for 2 hour a month (or more!) at our partner sites throughout Metro-west and the Greater Boston area, and put nature into the hands of people in our communities that cannot go outside for a walk to clear their mind, enjoy the autumn colors, or listen to the birds. Join us!
