“If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, then let us allow them to love the earth before we ask them to save it. Perhaps this is what Thoreau had in mind when he said, ‘the more slowly trees grow at first, the sounder they are at the core,’ and I think the same is true of human beings.” As a trailblazing environmental educator, David Sobel has been nurturing the ability of individuals to understand and care for nature for decades.

Strawberry Hill echoes this sentiment in our mission to inspire stewardship of our natural world by connecting the community with educational opportunities. This year, we are on track to educate more than 8,000 individuals through an incredible 250 environmental programs. While the majority of our program participants are ages 5 through 14, one is never too young or too old to be inspired and empowered to make a difference.

Kara Ferraro is the executive director of the Strawberry Hill Foundation. Strawberry Hill inspires stewardship of our natural world by connecting the community with educational opportunities.
