Muddy Sneakers

WHAT THEY DO: Muddy Sneakers is an award-winning outdoor science education program that partners with public elementary schools to teach curriculum-aligned topics to fifth grade students on nearby protected lands. In the 2019- 2020 school year, the nonprofit served more than 3,500 students in 47 schools across North Carolina. Since many students are now learning remotely, Muddy Sneakers has adapted its traditional model to provide remote and virtual science expeditions to continue to inspire the joy of learning outside, even if it’s only from your own backyard. During this time, Muddy Sneakers is working to ensure all administrators, educators and students have the resources they need to maintain well-being outside the classroom. Your gift today will allow us to reach further.

Muddy Sneakers works really hard to meet the diverse needs of our students, is patient and kind. Our students love Muddy Sneakers!
