OAK: Outdoors Alliance for Kids

expanding equitable access to nature for children, youth and families since 2010

About OAK

OAK is a national strategic partnership of more than 100 businesses and nonprofit organizations from diverse sectors with a common interest in connecting children, youth and families with the outdoors. 

Our members are brought together by the belief that the wellness of current and future generations, the health of our planet and communities and the economy of the future depend on humans having a personal, direct and life-long relationship with nature and the outdoors.

Although families have the leading role in connecting children with the outdoors, there is also a need for decision-makers to ensure that children, youth and families have the access, opportunities, skills and encouragement to connect with the great outdoors.
