NEO Houston - Nature & Eclectic Outdoors Pages

Nature & Eclectic Outdoors (NEO) is a Houston based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to introducing people to the many benefits of discovering the outdoors and sharing their experiences with others. We host weekly events and activities in Texas and beyond. NEO kindles a deeper passion for life by connecting people to nature and each other.

Our mission is to encourage people to live a more outdoor oriented and social lifestyle to improve quality of life and overall health, wellness, and longevity.

The NEO Project is launching three initiatives to help even more people live better, healthier, happier lives!

In addition to our “Wellness in Nature” events and trips that are open to anyone interested, in 2015 we are launching 3 programs specifically to benefit some special members of our community.

Through our “Wilderness Kids” initiative, NEO encourages kids and families to get off the couch, away from the video games and cell phones, and OUTSIDE. With the help of contributions and donations, NEO hosts events and clinics designed to teach kids necessary skills for enjoying outdoor activities and thriving in the natural world. Kids develop leadership and teamwork skills while learning about water safety, hiking, camping, nature and wildlife, and so much more! They are also introduced to people from all walks of life and from all over the world, giving them a broader understanding of the world and cultures around them.

NEO’s “Service to Serenity” program gives veterans the opportunity to “decompress” from day to day stresses and enjoy the calming effect of being immersed in nature…from simple day hikes to kayaking trips and multi-day backpacking adventures. This program concentrates on veterans of post 9/11 conflicts and those suffering from PTSD. These men and women benefit tremendously from outdoor and social activities that help them adjust to and thrive in civilian life. Many of NEO’s members are veterans who understand how rewarding and healing it is to develop a connection with nature. Our goal is to pass this on through frequent activities and ongoing support.

NEO is also incredibly excited to offer our “Nature for All” program benefitting people with various physical, emotional and mental challenges. We even offer events tailored to fit seniors in order to keep them strong and active. Studies have proven that exposure to nature and outdoor activities can have an incredibly healing effect both mentally and physically. Through our Nature for All program, NEO volunteers assist people in learning how to enjoy the outdoors no matter what their challenges through education, clinics, and outdoor events.

The generous support of both individuals and organizations make it possible for NEO to exist. Donations and funding are key to these initiatives. Gear such as backpacks, tents, sleeping bags, kayaks, etc. is needed as well as office equipment and donated time necessary for day to day operations.

Thank you!
