It has been a positive pilot year for us! A LOT of work, love and laughs. Creating the organization, the processes and developing quality programs that are financially sustainable and aligned with our mission were our number 1 goals (see our Impact Report). We created Barnacles & Bees because we knew there was a need in our community, our wait-list for our Nature Immersion Program keeps growing every week and we want to be able to serve our families without compromising the quality of our programs. It is a learning curve and we know the limitation of our own resources that is why we need your help. As a non profit organization (501C3 - 83 1313312) and a charity your donation is tax deductible. It will go towards our Barnacles and Bees annual Funds to support our educational programs, scholarships, technology, training.. We are committed, and really proud, to be part of this beautiful community. We are incredibly thankful for all who have shared this journey with us, and that have helped to make this organization a reality. We are especially honored to have had so many dedicated to our success including our founders, our team, our volunteers and board and so many community members. We look forward to continuing to build partnerships with individuals and organizations who share our mission and vision for a nature-filled future.
Our mission is to build an inclusive learning community that fosters a rich connection with nature, inspires confidence and creativity, and leads to the development of curious leaders, connected to each other and the planet that we share.
We teach that, no matter how small you are, from the tiniest barnacle to the busiest bee, you can have a meaningful and positive impact in your community.
