Columbia Families in Nature connects families with nearby nature opportunities. The mission of Columbia Families in Nature is to: foster a greater connection with nature and the community; enhance environmental awareness and action; help strengthen family relationships; and support the well-being of participants.
Columbia Families in Nature (CFIN) provides free, fun, friendly opportunities for families to spend time together in nature. On two to three Sunday afternoons a month, CFIN outings take place in natural areas in and around Columbia, Maryland. These outings emphasize play time in nature and also include hands-on environmental education and conservation activities.
Please email Columbia Families in Nature if you are interested in volunteering during outings to help families learn more about their nearby nature. People with naturalist / conservation knowledge and/or substantial familiarity with the natural areas around Columbia would be particularly helpful.
