Nature & Eclectic Outdoors (NEO) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to helping people of all ages and backgrounds lead more outdoor oriented lives for better health, happiness, and life balance. We are free to join and offer dozens of fun and family-friendly events to thousands of our community members each year. Because we believe everyone should be able to enjoy nature and the great outdoors regardless of socio-economic challenges, all NEO events are free or low-cost.
While NEO has a variety of programs, our 3 primary focuses are children and families, older adults, and people with special needs. We team up with schools, government entities, and other organizations to provide training and opportunities that change lives. Through involvement with NEO, kids develop leadership and problem-solving skills while building a deeper appreciation for nature and the world around them, seniors learn tricks and tips to stay more physically and mentally active and social, and people with special needs get access to activities custom tailored to meet their unique challenges.
NEO serves thousands each year through events such as school field trips, public festivals, and educational seminars. We also offer amazing outdoor activities like nature walks, camping, backpacking, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, geocaching, outdoor cooking clinics, nature photography, and more.
Studies prove that kids who spend time outdoors are healthier, happier, and smarter than their indoor counterparts. Through our “Wilderness Kids” initiative we see amazing changes in children who have access to nature. They are better at problem solving, develop a natural understanding of basic physics and engineering, improve leadership skills, and excel at working in teams. When parents participate with their children they build a stronger family unit, develop a better appreciation and understanding of one another, and instances of family conflict and child abuse decrease.
Sponsors are a key component of how NEO is able to serve so many and inspire people to develop and maintain healthier life habits. The bottom line is…
Sponsors help NEO change lives for the better!
Please look over our sponsorship packages and benefits. You'll receive recognition as a caring community leader while you are generously helping others. It's a win-win!
