Who inspires you? Is it a science teacher who introduces their students to the wonders of the natural world? A nonprofit leader who works tirelessly to create new, exciting, and innovative programs for our local community?
Now’s the time to give ’em a little love. Award nominations are currently being accepted for the 2019 Celebration of Children In Nature, hosted annually by CiNCA (the Children In Nature Collaborative of Austin). The awards honor individuals and organizations in Austin who have dedicated themselves to helping children get outside and enjoy the wonders of nature.
You can learn more about the award categories here and submit your nomination here.
