FAU Pine Jog to Build Nature Playscape for the Community

 

FAU Pine Jog Environmental Education Center is constructing a hands-on, kid and family directed  Nature Playscape!

This outdoor play space will engage children and families to interact directly with nature and allow themselves to imagine, explore, learn, heal, and spend quality time together.

A Nature Playscape is a  natural, free-play area  where children interact with nature through sensory learning experiences by engaging with and manipulating diverse natural elements, organisms, and habitats. Our purpose is to promote all types of play, foster environmental stewardship, inspire a sense of wonder and create opportunities for community connections.

This playscape is a community build – built by volunteers from the community! So that stretches your dollars further and will directly impact the kids! We want to thank ML40 — TEAM EARTH for being an active supporter of this project.

 

Make a donation today and impact future generations!
