Our Mission


 

Just beyond our doors - in city and suburbs alike - there is a wondrous world of natural activity. Whether in a local forest, pond, or even the park at the end of the block, the cycle of life and the daily happenings of nature can delight a young child's unbridled curiosity all year round.

PUDDLESTOMPERS' mission is to connect the youngest naturalists, ages 2 to 8 (and their parents and caregivers) to the open spaces in their communities. By providing children and families with seeds of interest and tools of exploration, PUDDLESTOMPERS seeks to help build the foundation for a lifelong enjoyment, love of the outdoors, and a lasting stewardship of nature. 

A percentage of PUDDLESTOMPERS' revenues are given to the host towns to support local environmental education and/or conservation efforts.
