When we were young, we played outdoors all the time. Nature was part of our daily worlds, as it was for all our friends.  Trees were towers to be climbed, bushes were secret hideouts, and ponds were for catching frogs.  If you think back, you may be able to relate to this in some way. And though those woods and green spaces are gone now, we are the teachers, naturalists and people we are today because of those magical days of play and friendship outdoors.

Our kids need this more than ever now.

We believe access to the natural world and Nature Connection programs should be available to everyone – in fact it’s part of our mission.  However we also know that there are deep rooted barriers to access for some folks.  We can’t do it alone and humbly ask you to help us overcome some of these obstacles. You can directly help local children attend our programming – consider becoming a Strong Roots community sponsor of Free Spirit Forest and Nature School!  It’s more than just a donation.

By sponsoring our programs you will be giving back to our community and investing in its future at a level that matters deeply. Education is the basis for a thriving community, and our programs allow children to foster healthy connections and sustainability practices right here in Southern Georgian Bay.

The sponsorship of a single student can have a huge and lasting positive impact on a child’s life.  In turn the benefits of our programs extend into their social life, and continue to grow in our community.

As a show of gratitude for your generous contributions, please see our various corporate sponsorship levels for what we can offer your business in return. If you are able to contribute to enriching education and we appreciate your involvement in our wonderful community!

Let’s get creative, too.  Not all support comes in a monetary donation.  Workshops, special skills or in-kind donations are greatly appreciated as well!
