Mission Statement

Kids4Trees is a 501(c)(3). not-for-profit organization whose mission is to provide enthusiastic and responsible environmental stewardship and healthy lifestyle programs, focusing on underserved and disconnected elementary school children. Kids4Trees believes that it is absolutely vital that all children are exposed to nature and healthy choices, and have access to policies and programming essential to the sustainability of our planet and the creation of its stewards. Kids4Trees serves children throughout the United States.

Description

Kids4Trees, a national participating partner with the USDA Forest Service, and partner with the World Olympians Association, has been endorsed by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Billion Tree Campaign, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), United Nations Association (San Francisco), OAK (Outdoor Alliance for Kids), National Wildlife Federation, Children&Nature Network, Prince Albert II Foundation of Monaco, For the Forests, California Department of Education, and many others.
Kids4Trees, a California nonprofit IRS 501(c)(3) public benefit corporation, was organized in 2008 for the purpose of providing meaningful and enjoyable outdoor forest education, compatible with the philosophy and policies of the Forest Service, which will result in thousands of young, impressionably-aged children becoming stewards of their forests and the environment. In school programs the children plant trees on campus and often in pots to take home and plant in their gardens or nearby parks, whereby they can water and care for "their" trees.

Kids4Trees is dedicated to providing free outdoor environmental education and planting programs and events, which include related forest information kits, music, children’s concerts, and environmental art. Kids4Trees is also dedicated to combating the nature-deficit disorders, including obesity, suffered by our increasingly sedentary youth, whose intimacy with nature is rapidly fading and focused on technology often leading to various forms of nature-deficit disorders. The average child in the US spends app. 45 sedentary hours per week in front of computer screens, cell phones and television.
