Earth Rangers is the kids’ conservation organization, committed to instilling environmental knowledge, positivity, and the confidence to take action in children. We do this through a suite of free programming that children can participate in at school, at home, and in their communities. All of these programs are educational and engaging – but more importantly, they show children that it’s not too late to help the planet, and the things we do today will matter tomorrow. Founded in Ontario in 2004, we have since grown to have over 50,000 active members and 300,000 alumni across Canada. Having recently established a 501c3, we are now poised to continue our expansion into the United States, with adapted programs and content for the US market.
