Who We Are

Texas Children in Nature (TCiN) is a grassroots network of over 500 partner organizations and individuals dedicated to connecting children and families with nature in Texas to be healthier, happier and smarter. Our eight regional collaboratives across the state work directly with local communities to fulfill our mission through community outreach and engagement, nature-based programming, and special initiatives. Resources, ideas and strategies are leveraged and shared across the network.
