Eagle Eye provides hands-on, exploratory learning opportunities for youth and young adults between the ages of 8 and 24. We ensure underserved urban youth get access to nature by partnering directly with community organizations. By using the power of nature as a catalyst for personal transformation, we aim to improve the health and well being of our youth participants. We love helping youth fall in love with nature! When youth get into the mud and catch a frog, they develop an understanding that science happens all around them, and that they themselves are a part of nature. Eagle Eye helps youth make not only nature connections, but also community connections through stewardship of urban neighborhoods and natural sites.
With the purpose of creating a diverse pool of ecologically-educated voters and professionals, all of Eagle Eye programs incorporate a three-tiered model for social change:
Environmental learning to build awareness
Stewardship to develop responsibility
Career-bridging to cultivate leadership
