Mission Statement

The Nature Generation (NatGen) is a 501(c)(3) environmental nonprofit that inspires and empowers youth to make a difference. We reach our nation’s youth through innovative environmental stewardship programs in literature, science and the arts.

Description

The Nature Generation focuses on our nation’s youth to inspire this next generation to carry the mantle forward. We enrich their experience with nature and outdoor projects so that as they become adults they will think about and care about the footprint they and their family and business make.

Through Teach Green and Read Green we educate them and encourage them to look at expanding their studies into the fields of sustainability, environmental science, alternative energy and green technology. We aspire to teach the ethos of environmental stewardship to individuals, businesses and communities. We recognize and reward those that demonstrate insight and leadership in this field.

We invest in innovative ideas and programs:

  • We are the founders of the United States’ first environmental stewardship literature and book award program -- the Read Green Program.
  • We are the stewards of trails and community and school habitats through our Teach Green program that allows students a firsthand knowledge of the diversity, strength and fragility of local ecosystems.

We are based in the Washington DC area with both a local presence and a national focus for our youth programs.

NatGen is a vibrant organization. We are responsive and responsible. We are innovative and practical. We are multigenerational. We are collaborative. We love what we do. We hope to engage your interest, your talent, your support and your passion
