Hi, I'm Dr. Jenny!

As a mom, I know the struggle of getting kids outside and engaged with nature. Pulling them away from the screen. The fear of your children getting hurt. What to actually DO when you’re out there. Sometimes it feels impossible to just get out the door.

For the last decade, I've worked as a biologist and professor, researcher, and outdoor guide. I've been involved in countless community education projects that teach ecology and environmental issues to families. I've had the pleasure of partnering with state-wide initiatives that focus on getting kids outside. What I've learned from these experiences can be found throughout Nature Matters Academy.

Join me as we connect our children with nature through simple strategies that even the busiest parent can use. According to scientific research, these strategies will nurture your child's health and happiness. They'll also help your child develop a love and curiosity for the natural world so they're more likely to care for it as adults.

With a few simple tweaks, we can intentionally and consistently infuse nature experiences into our kid’s lives, giving them (and our planet) a brighter future!

What is Nature Matters Academy?

The foundation of Nature Matters Academy is built on two things: 1) nurturing our children's health and happiness, and 2) developing their love for the natural world so when they become adults they'll care for it.

We do this by giving parents the tools they need to get their kids outside and engaged with nature. This includes planning tips, checklists, easy activities, activities based in science, a community of support, and access to an expert in the field.

Nature Matters Academy will Make it Easier for you to:

spend more quality time as a family and less time planning. You'll always have something to do! In addition to weekly activities you'll get a monthly checklist of fun ideas that your kids can choose from. If you've ever been at a loss for ideas, you won't be anymore!

For less than a cup of coffee a week, you'll get all this and more:

  • Stress free, seasonal activities delivered weekly to your inbox.
  • Help planning nature activities so it’s easy to get out the door.
  • A supportive community of like-minded parents to share ideas with.
  • Information on how nature makes your kids happier, healthier, & smarter.
  • Research-supported techniques for connecting kids with nature.
  • Guidance, support, and encouragement from an expert in the field.
  • A lot more time and a lot less stress because you’ll have quick access to quality information.

I’ve been trying to raise my sons to love and care for the environment but I wasn’t quite sure how. We’d go outside a lot but more for a change of scenery (and sanity!) than learning about nature (also I don’t know much about wildlife) and we tend to do the same activities over and over. I love that Jenny gives suggestions for how to adjust activities depending on your children’s ages. Most of all, the activities are simple, fun, and close to home which was is SO nice because it takes the pressure off of feeling like I need to plan all day outings in order for my sons to ‘connect with’ nature.
