The MISSION of Growing Up Wild is to help youth connect with nature, build character, and learn about the environment by providing outdoor youth development and environmental education programs.
Growing Up Wild Partners WITH Climate Ride to increase
our impact on CONNECTING youth with nature.
This June, alumni GUW counselor, Leonardo Cruz, is going to ride his bicycle 250 miles along the California Coast to represent Growing Up Wild and help raise funds for environmental education for youth. Please consider making a donation by supporting our alumni counselor, Leonardo Cruz, as he participates in Climate Ride on behalf of our organization.
Our VISION is that youth from underserved backgrounds living in Watsonville and the greater Santa Cruz County have ongoing opportunities to access, enjoy, and learn about the wild outdoor places around the central coast of California.
