What is Nature Niños New Mexico?

 

Nature Niños is an initiative created by New Mexico Wildlife Federation, dedicated to promoting that New Mexico youth, of all ages, should be spending more time outdoors being physically active, intern less time indoors and on electronic devices. Ensuring that our children understand and can make informed decisions about where their food comes from and making healthy eating choices. 

New Mexico Wildlife Federation's mission is to inspire New Mexicans to conserve public landscapes, watersheds, and wildlife for our children's future. By doing this we must engage and inspire our youth to have meaningful connections with nature during their childhood, creating future stewards of our beautiful state and all of its natural elements.

NMWF is spending time creating partnerships with national and local organizations that share this same vision. We hope that YOU will also join the Nature Niños team by inspiring those around you to encourage and allow our youth to reengage in nature.
