RBG’s Greatest Need – Growing up Green: Connecting Kids to Nature

Over the past 18 months, we have come to understand that nature and natural areas have played a critical role in helping us all get through one of the most difficult periods of our lives. Through all phases of the recent pandemic, nature has been there for us. Whether it’s a walk around the block, or a hike along one of the many nature trails at RBG, nature has been there to heal us and to rejuvenate us.

With a donation to Growing up Green, your gift will directly support our operations by funding horticulture and conservation initiatives, along with our award-winning educational programming. Your special gift will ensure that our gardens, our trails and natural areas, our programs and our services will be here for everyone to enjoy long into the future.
