Foster the Earth

by Don Kindred |

Dec. 23, 2020 Foster the Earth is dedicated to helping vulnerable children and young adults in the foster care system through exposure to the great outdoors.

It is a 7-month program starting in March each year. They meet once a month for day hikes, where participants learn the skills needed to embark on a week-long backpacking trip at the end of the program. Each month, our hikes add more distance and altitude, and leaders provide education in Leave No Trace, Wilderness First Aid, and backcountry travel. Through this journey, we deepen our connection to nature and create an experience of a lifetime

The Rainbow® Sandals Foundation’s $10,000 donation will help bring even more young adults into the program.
