Cities Connecting Children to Nature: Funders Roundtable
As you likely know, our work at Adams Legacy Foundation focuses on using nature to strengthen, nurture and heal the soul. We feel that this is a powerful tool for personal development and for increasing community well-being and addressing longstanding inequities, especially those that exist across Los Angeles County.
Unfortunately, we know that many communities across Los Angeles County and the metropolitan area face disproportionate barriers to accessing nature and the benefits of physical and mental health it offers. All too often, communities of color and low-income Angelenos lack transportation, financial resources, or even knowledge of local natural areas that would help them connect with nature.
One of our grantees, Wildwoods (as the backbone agency for the LA STEM Collective) is working on a regional effort to better understand and address these barriers.
Join representatives from NLC and C&NN for a Funders Roundtable on Thursday, July 13, 2023, from 9 - 11 a.m. at the Magnolia Place Family Center to explore these issues. We’d love to share some of their insights and findings, as well as hear what funders are seeing through their work that may touch on or intersect with equitable connection to nature.
If you have any questions about this event, please reach out to Carol Peralta, Wildwoods Program Director, and CCCN coordinator.
