Originally organized by National Wildlife Federation in the 1970s, Family Nature Summits is a non-profit organization run by dedicated volunteers (with the help of two part-time paid staff members as well as a multitude of esteemed faculty members). Our mission is to provide an opportunity for families and individuals to experience and learn about nature.
Family Nature Summits are for people who love nature. During the day, the kids enjoy educational & adventurous activities with their peers while the adults can sign up for guided hikes & classes of interest. There are family-oriented activities each evening. The program appeals to singles, couples, friends and families of all ages and the Summits take place in a new location each year.
We are proud to continue this NWF tradition and have been an independent, volunteer-run experience since 2006.
