History

Inspired by Richard Louv’s book, "Last Child in the Woods; Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder,” Project Get Outdoors began in 2005 as an after-school program for migrant, Latino youth in the small agricultural community of Plainview, Minnesota. Today, our non-profit organization works with community action groups across the state to implement accessible programs and activities for children to experience nature and outdoor exploration.

Since 2005, Project GO has served more than 50,000 children in 50+ locations across Minnesota.  Project GO programs have been offered at community centers, YMCA's, Boys and Girls Clubs, recreation centers, libraries, latch key programs and low-income housing complexes. Our program model can be implemented in any setting.
