Friends of Nature for Life Project is designed to inspire elementary school students to recognize nature and all lives on earth as their life-long friends. Through the caring friendship they develop with plants, animals and the surroundings in their elementary school years, they begin to care for the natural world. Environmental literacy and awareness have not been formally brought into the main curriculums in elementary schools. We believe it is an urgent task to reconnect children with nature therefore we developed a 5-year progressive project that students can participate every year throughout their elementary school years. While the programs address educational standards, it provides fun and interesting hands-on exploration and discovery. After continuous learning, students will become guardians of Mother Earth to appreciate, care for, and protect the earth for their own future.
