Donate Today to the Jacksonville
Inspiring Connections Outdoors Program

Jacksonville ICO

Today we see an increasing divide between our youth and the natural world. Children living in the inner city are especially removed from experiences with our natural environment. As Richard Louv expresses in his national best-seller, Last Child in the Woods, “In nature, a child finds freedom, fantasy, and privacy: a place distant from the adult world, a separate peace."

Inspiring Connections Outdoors (ICO) is a community outreach program of the Sierra Club that provides inner city youth with trips to the wilderness.  Through the Jacksonville Inspiring Connections Outdoors Program, children discover the beauty of wild lands and how to enjoy these places without harming them.  They learn valuable survival skills and develop the ability to face challenges outside their urban evironments.  Interpersonal skills and self-esteem grow as a natural result of teamwork and an active relationship with the outdoors.

Dedicated Sierra Club volunteers run Jacksonville ICO, ensuring safe, enjoyable outings for its youth participants. Our program depends completely on tax-deductible donations made by people like you. Donate Now so we can continue to provide children in the Jacksonville area with opportunities to enjoy, explore, and protect nature.
