Challenge Overview

Looking for meaningful learning activities to build family connections in an outdoor setting during this long summer? We invite you to join the Children’s Environmental Literacy Foundation Houston-based Educator team for a meaningful, fun-filled Family Nature Challenge taking place over 3 weeks in June! The challenges are self-paced and allow for schedule-flexibility for families.  

How does the Family Nature Challenge work?

You will receive a challenge each Monday, accompanied by thought-provoking mini-lessons, educational tools to enhance understanding, and Texas-based guest speakers who will share valuable environmental insights for the whole family. We will end each week with a live Show and Tell, structured on building community among families across the Houston-Galveston region!
