Columbia Families in Nature

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.
