MNECO Nests are a local community that is inclusive of all educators and advocates with an interest in nature-based education. 

MNECO Nests believe that nature play is a right for all children and it is a fundamental human childhood experience.  Therefore, rather than establishing a competitive, scarcity-based vibe around nature-based programs, we encourage MNECO Nests to support and encourage each other.
