Nature for Everyone
Help NatureTrack continue our mission of making nature accessible to all! NatureTrack’s ability to connect students – including wheelchair users and others with physical disabilities – to the natural world is directly linked to our ability to fund program costs and equipment which make that access possible. To continue providing more wheelchair users with Freedom Trax so they can participate in outdoor field trips, we need your help.
For the first ten years of our existence, students, teachers, and volunteers who use wheelchairs could not participate because most of our field trip locations were inaccessible to wheelchairs. Now, with your help, these students and teachers can join classmates and colleagues on our county’s beautiful beaches and trails, enjoying those same connections with nature.
In addition to students and teachers, volunteers who are wheelchair users or have other physical disabilities will also be able to participate and share their passion for the outdoors with local students.
NatureTrack is a 501(c)3 non-profit whose mission is to provide outdoor field trips for school-aged children at no cost to the schools or students.
Executive Director: Sue Eisaguirre
Begin to Build a Relationship
We know you care about where your money goes and how it is used. Connect with this organization’s leadership in order to begin to build this important relationship. Your email will be sent directly to this organization’s director of development and/or Executive Director.
The miracle of a student experiencing the wonders of nature, often for the first time, is a life-changing gift that NatureTrack gives a child every time they hit the trail. We’ve repeatedly witnessed the delight and transformation that occur with students and that’s why we continue to support NatureTrack and its critical mission.
Connecting to Nature Through Film
Held every year for the past four years, the NatureTrack Film Festival has become the organization’s go-to fundraising platform. The 2021 installment was a hybrid event with a one-day in-person festival followed by a two-week virtual format that featured 76 world-class nature films and participants from more than 20 countries. The festival, which offers multiple sponsorships, is a natural extension of NatureTrack’s mission to connect people to the natural world.
