About

WE ARE GREEN EXPLORERS

Green Explorers Club teaches kids the tools of sustainability while building a healthy curiosity for life sciences and the environment. We explore sustainability through hands-on experiments and activities that demonstrate the importance of taking care of our planet.

We believe every childhood should involve the exploration of nature. Our programs share our love and curiosity for the environment with young people who will one day change the world.

About Green Explorers

OUR STORY

We believe every childhood should involve the exploration of nature. Our programs share our love and curiosity for the environment with young people who will one day change the world.

Green Explorers Club was started by Chicago moms who love the outdoors. We wanted to create something different that would help city kids connect with nature and build sustainable habits that respect our environment.

Green Explorers Club programs are very hands-on and are designed to encourage creativity and problem solving in our young people. Our take-home projects are designed to encourage family discussions and on-going observations, and include windowsill plant observations, compost experiments, eco-system explorations, urban animals, and energy conservation.

Our Core Values

Education

We believe an environmental education helps kids understand the inter-connectedness of the world around them.

Participation

We believe the best way to understand the environment is to experience it for yourself. In our programs kids dig in the dirt, test their own scientific theories, and learn about nature and sustainability with their own two hands.

Awareness

We believe if we do not expose our kids to nature when they are young, they will not value it enough to protect it when they are adults. It is our mission to supply our kids the tools they need to manage the environmental obstacles of the future.

Responsibility

Where we come from, when something is important, you show up. We encourage our Green Explorers to get involved in their community, and through our classes we connect them to a variety of citizen science projects where their support can make a real difference.
