Nature Collective

Help an organization that keeps the local lands + waters protected – and the community connected!

Nature is our guiding light. Nature is here for you, and nature is resilient! With you by our side, new ways of connecting will hold us together in a bond with nature. Will you help to keep lands and waters healthy for people, plants and animals? Access to the outdoors is one of the most important facets of our vision. 

Your donation and membership makes you a matchmaker–helping people fall in love with nature, inspiring them to be advocates of our precious lands + waters. 

Your donation helps people:

Coexist with Critters

The special feeling of making eye contact with a bird – or a mule deer analyzing you from across a field – is something Nature Collective protects. We watch over 1,000+ species of plants + animals that are unique to Southern California.

Experience the Coast

When a child on a school field trip tells us that this is her first time at the ocean, we’re motivated to inspire her to keep coming back! Like many children who live upstream or far away, they’re unable to access the coast. We’re changing that as we open the outdoors to everyone.

Connect via More Trails
+ Nature

Donations helped Nature Collective secure 77 acres this year. Imagine more lands saved, and more trails connecting our communities. Acquiring lands is the purest form of protecting nature for our future generations.

Unite Friends + Families

With weekend field trips, we invite families + friends to enjoy the outdoors. Thanks to your support, we encourage loving relationships with our rivers, streams, riparian forests, slopes, and seashore.

Nature, A Love Story

When we experience nature, it inspires us.
With mesmerizing grace, it evokes wonder.
In nature, we discover trees, critters. . .ourselves.
We can breathe.
We see things anew.
We come alive and we also come together.
It heals . . . centers . . . opens us up to new possibility.
Just one experience has the power to captivate our heart.
In love, we become her greatest steward and advocate.
