Support Nature Access for All

When you support us you help ensure we build our network to include all children and never need to turn anyone away due to lack of funds. We have several specific funds and other ways you can support nature access for all.

Primitive Pursuits Annual Appeal

Give to our annual campaign to fund ongoing initiatives

Increase our scholarship capacity so that all young people can enjoy access to nature. This includes initiatives such as transportation.

Ensure the survival of Primitive Pursuits in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic

The Lily glidden scholarship fund

A celebration of Lily’s extraordinary life and a way for her parents and friends at Primitive Pursuits to carry on her incredible spirit of curiosity, adventure, and love for nature.

The Lily Glidden Scholarship Fund was established in 2015 with support from Steve and Nancy Glidden.

Ava Jane howerton memorial fund

In the summer of 2018, Paul Sutera embarked on a 500-mile ride to establish a scholarship fund in memory of Ava Jane Howerton. In Paul’s words:

“This is about keeping Ava’s spirit alive. Even though she is no longer here, her spirit will live on in giving to others.”
