The Nature Generation's Green Education Programs

The Nature Generation (Nat Gen) is an environmental nonprofit that is inspiring the next generation to become responsible stewards of the earth. This K-12 environmental organization helps to prepare children for the important environmental challenges they will face in the future, by connecting them with nature today. 

Nat Gen runs successful K-12 school programs in Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. Their national programs include "Read Green", which promotes books for children and young adults on environmental stewardship. Its signature "Green Book Awards" program is the nation's first environmental stewardship book award for children and young adult books. Since 2005 over 80 authors have been honored in this prestigious program.

Nat Gen also runs the leading DC-area charity golf event for the environmental community, the Greater Washington Eco Golf Classic. This year's event was the 11th hosted by The Nature Generation and was held on April 26th. In addition to a great venue, its an opportunity to network with D.C. environmental professionals. Whether you are playing in the event or availing yourself of sponsorship opportunities, this is a great cause worthy of support.

Please consider supporting this organization as it is one of the most direct ways to get a sustainable return from your time and financial donations.
