Hands of the Future, Inc.
Who we are:
We are a group of individuals dedicated to sharing our love of nature with future generations.
What we do:
We teach children of today to actively engage the natural world. We encourage them to appreciate the beauty and wonder around them. We hope this will ignite in them a passion for all learning so that they may become the best person they can be. We believe every child, regardless of race, religion or economic background, deserves the same opportunities to participate in the benefits of nature to their well-being.
We provide both structured learning opportunities and unstructured activities. Our structured learning opportunities are based on proven and successful nature programs, pre-K to eighth grade. The unstructured activities will be designed to utilize features of the land and created habitats so that the children may learn about nature through exploration and discovery of the natural world. Together, both structured and unstructured activities reinforce one another and compliment area education programs.
We want them to:
- Have adventures!
- Be part of a community!
It is our hope that they may become the environmental leaders of tomorrow!
To Dream of a Children's Forest...
We would like to develop a Children's Forest for our area children. Two years ago there were only nine in the whole country. Recently I read that there are twenty two, so the idea is catching on. We thought we had the land issue solved, but that didn't work out as we thought. So, we are once again searching for a place to develop a nature rich site with the children's needs in mind. A place to have adventures, to discover the wonder of our world. A place with water, woods, meadows and interesting topography would be great. And we feel the best way to do that is to raise the funds to buy the land ourselves. Then we will have the freedom to be innovative, creative and think outside the box as often as necessary. If you would like to donate to our land fund, we would greatly appreciate your help. No amount is too small because it all adds up. Thank you!
