NoVA Outside is an alliance of environmental educators, schools, businesses, nature centers, non-profits, “green” groups, and government agencies who strive to connect people of all ages to the natural environment. We began informally in 2010 as a forum to connect environmental educators, and since then have grown into a regional network offering professional development, networking and resource sharing for environmental education professionals. NoVA Outside is the only organization of its kind in Northern Virginia!

NoVA Outside is on the board of the Virginia Association for Environmental Education, a state-wide professional association supporting environmental education in Virginia.

In December 2014, NoVA Outside became a program sponsored by United Charitable (UC), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  UC acts as our fiscal agent, helping us efficiently and effectively manage our finances so that we can focus on building our alliance.  This sponsorship grants NoVA Outside tax-exempt status.

Our mission is to foster partnerships between like-minded individuals and organizations in the environmental education community that spark curiosity in our natural world, improve content knowledge and promote action. NoVa Outside is committed to sharing information, resources and talent to develop the next generation of environmental stewards in the Northern Virginia area.
