Green Team

The Saving Nature Now – Green Team program allows children and their families to take actions that directly help nature and encourage sustainable living.  

“Yes, we started our activity books at last meeting, and we started our nature journal and did a clean up walk on our school’s campus. Several students have told me that they are using the booklets with their families at home, as well!” – Brady Carman, Green Team sponsor at Root Elementary School, Fayetteville, Arkansas
