The Wildwoods Foundation is a different kind of environmental organization.
Created in response to the horrific school shooting at Columbine, we use ecology and the outdoor experience as a framework for human relations. Our work happens at the nexus of social science and natural science.
In addition to what might be considered traditional "environmental education," our programs address Nature Deficit Disorder and the inequity of access to nature from a public health and a social justice perspective.
We are about to celebrate our 20th anniversary of serving the greater Los Angeles area.
We are looking for visionaries who can help us plan for the next 20 years.
Ideal candidates should have previous board service and fundraising experience in addition to well-developed senses of both adventure and humor.
If you think you're a fit, we'd like to hear from you. Please send an email or give us a call.

The mission of the Wildwoods Foundation is to equip the children, families, and educators of Los Angeles to practice the principles of ecoliteracy in creating sustainable, harmonious communities.
Founded in the aftermath of the tragic school shooting at Columbine, the Wildwoods Foundation uses ecology as a springboard to help young people understand that the principles governing nature's ecosystems -interdependence, diversity and sustainability- are just as important to the social fabric of our schools, communities and workplaces.
Now a part of the Magnolia Community Initiative, a collective impact project of 75 agencies and organizations serving 500 blocks between downtown Los Angeles and the USC campus, Wildwoods is contributing to the resiliency of families by providing increased access to nature.
