The Nature Connection

Joined in March 2002

About Us

Founded in 1983, The Nature Connection brings the healing power of nature to those with limited access to the natural world: at-risk youth, people with disabilities, and elders (including those with Alzheimer's). Our therapeutic, educational programs have a unique methodology that combines nature, the arts, and live animals. Our mission is to support the human spirit by offering and building connections between people and the natural world. Our year-long programs and professional caregiver trainings reach at-risk youth respite programs, residential and special needs schools, programs for people with disabilities, and memory support/Alzheimer's residences throughout Greater Boston. By bringing the hands-on nature programs into these settings, NC connects vulnerable individuals with nature's capacity to teach and heal.
