What we're about

https://secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/1/1/f/b/600_463744603.jpeg

We can all benefit from connecting with the wonders of nature. This group is ideal for anyone looking for opportunities to learn more about wildlife and their habitat throughout the greater Charlotte region. CROWN understands that we can have both economic growth and create healthy, natural habitat for local wildlife. Our family friendly programs offer a wide variety of topics and outings that will provide environmental education with hands-on involvement resulting in a better understanding that we are part of nature - not separate from nature. Find out how you can make any landscape, including your home, workplace, school, and place of worship, a sustainable wildlife habitat.

“Imagine a treatment that would improve your mood, make you smarter, keep you healthier​ improve your relationships. How much would you invest in that therapy? ​ Turns out, there is such a thing and best of all, it’s free. It’s called Nature.”
