Texas Children in Nature Network

Location: STATEWIDE, Texas

In the early 2000’s research was emerging that showed that children were spending less time in the outdoors and more time with media; while at the same time childhood obesity rates were increasing at an alarming rate. In response, over 80 professionals including representatives from state and federal agencies, NGOs, health, education, natural resources, community organizations and businesses, answered the call and formed the Texas Partnership for Children in Nature (TCiN). Texas Children in Nature’s mission is to ensure equitable access and connection to nature for all children in Texas. TCiN promotes happier, healthier and smarter children (and adults!) through engagement with nature and better understanding of Texas’ natural resources.

TCiN is a grassroots network of 603 partner organizations and individuals who are working together to connect children and families with nature in Texas. Regional partnerships around the state are actively working at the local level focusing on the benefits and opportunities in the areas of health, access, education and community. TCiN has eight regions throughout the state that explore and champion projects that are relevant to the communities they serve, and features partner programs on their Nature Rocks Texas website.

Texas Children in Nature Network was selected as a 2020 Conservation Wrangler. View the project page here.
