The Children & Nature Network, the National League of Cities and KABOOM! have partnered to launch a new initiative designed to increase equitable access to Nature Everywhere children live, learn and play in 100 communities by 2025. Nineteen U.S. communities have been selected through a competitive application process to join an inaugural Nature Everywhere Communities cohort, including the GO (Get Outdoors) Groton team. Nature Everywhere Communities will receive two years of strategic planning, technical support and start-up funding to develop and implement community-driven plans for connecting children and families to nature-based experiences and learning.

The GO Groton team is a strong partnership between the Groton Public Schools, the Town of Groton, and the Groton Open Space Association with a focus on collaboration to increase outdoor access to school-age children. The team is eager to engage in a community assessment process that addresses childhood health and well-being as well as climate resilience and environmental stewardship.

The partners will use this page to post materials and updates. Please follow the project to be kept in the loop!
