We’re about environmental education, inclusion, and nature for all—created for everyone!
We value diversity, and provide FREE education, hiking, fishing, and camping opportunities.
Guided Hikes and Natural and Cultural Resource Park Interpretation
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to create nature opportunity for everyone. We do senior walks, hikes for the general public, family-friendly nature walks, Virtual Photo Walks for those living with disability, hikes for those struggling with weight, youth-at-risk engagement, and nature hikes for adults reentering society.
We also do Boy and Girl Scout badge programs, Boys & Girls Club day summer camp, homeschool classes, and adult workshops.
Elementary School Field Trips
At Saved By Nature, we are dedicated to providing natural and cultural environmental field trips of the highest quality. Creating customized field trips for teachers that support their curriculum goals is our specialty.
We plan to disperse field trip scholarships, this is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.
Summer Science Day Camp
Richard Tejeda, our Founder, went to a Title 1 (low-income) elementary school, so he didn’t have the opportunity to experience science camp. This is exclusion, we plan to create science day camps for those students left behind.
Our science day camps are 2 weeks long 10 days, Monday - Friday from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. We're starting June 1st, 2020 and programming until August 31st. You can be put on a waiting list by contacting us at
Elementary School Field Trip Bus Transportation
With this initiative, our goal is to promote great opportunities for those in need. With access to the right resources students can excel in science and move forward to higher grade levels with confidence.
We're raising money for low-income elementary school bus transportation for field trips and plan to fund our first bus on September 26th 2019 - woohoo!
