Your Gift Doubled!

Empower Children to Explore the Natural World

Support Environmental Volunteers and Help Bridge the Science Education Gap

There’s a growing gap in science education and nature-based STEM lessons for K-6 schools in underserved communities. Many schools lack the resources to provide meaningful outdoor experiences and science curricula that foster a love for nature, inspire curiosity, and develop deep problem-solving skills.

How You Can Help

We need your renewed and increased support this year to bridge that gap and provide vital learning experiences for these communities. Please consider making a gift today. Any gift increase you can muster will be matched 1:1 up to $9,000, thanks to an anonymous group of longtime donors. 

Making a Difference Together

Together, we are making an immediate and positive difference for the students, classrooms, and communities where we operate in California and New York. Through our science and nature-based STEM school programs, day camps, and our Let’s Go Field Trip! (LGFT!) Fund, we’re bridging the nature-deficit divide by providing immersive outdoor experiences for children who might otherwise never have the chance to explore the wonders and benefits of the natural world.

One such kindergartener, Zelle, eagerly shared, “I get to go on a school field trip today to learn about worms!” Her excitement exemplifies the impact of our programs. 

Supporting Teachers and Classrooms

We also help fill the STEM gap in elementary classrooms by supporting teachers with the necessary resources to integrate hands-on science lessons into curriculums. Ms. Barasch, a kindergarten teacher, shared her appreciation upon receiving our new Life Stages program: “We love EV! We’ve always loved the EV, we want any and every EV program we can get!”

Our Vision for the Future

As we look to the future, we are committed to expanding our reach and impact. In the next three years, EV’s goal is to engage at least 25% or more of all underserved elementary schools in the local regions where we operate. To achieve this level of impact, we need your generous support more than ever.
