    Child and Family Development Center: Nurture In Nature Project

    Nurture In Nature assesses the impact of wilderness outings on mental health and well-being of two low income groups: a) child welfare referred mothers/caregivers of children zero to 5 and b) children and families living in a large public housing facility (Mar Vista Gardens). By getting young children out in nature and providing parents with opportunities to bond and create memories with their children, we aim to provide opportunities to experience respite from daily stressors, and connect with other families in a supportive environment.
