    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.

    OUR STORY

    Hello! Welcome to Green Explorers Club, we’re Erin and Kelly. We are the women behind Green Explorers Club and love to empower kids all over Chicago to do their part to protect the planet. 

    All of our lessons are hand-tested and approved by the 3 cuties above – Cameron, Jack and Vivienne – our kids! They are not shy about giving their opinions, and we are grateful for their feedback, because it helps us keep our program fresh and fun for your kids too. You can be sure that when your kids are with us they are engaged, having fun, and learning something new. 

    We couldn’t do what we do without two handsome fellas not pictured above – our husbands – who are always behind the scenes building garden boxes, hanging shelves, or doing whatever else needs to be done. We also want to make sure you know Russell, our Creative Director and partner in crime, who keeps Green Explorers Club looking hip and on point at every turn. 

    Take a peek around our website to learn more about us and our programs; and feel free to call or swing by our Bucktown studio to say hi or ask us a question. We hope to see your kids at Green Explorers Club soon!

    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.
