welcome to the Children's corner!

We think that introducing children to nature will enhance the quality of their lives. We like to see children getting outside and exploring nature. We are currently accepting submissions for the Children’s Corner. Feel free to submit ideas for a child centered wildlife/nature craft or activity, or if you have some photos of children doing nature centered crafts or drawings that you’d like to share, we'd love to share them with our young readers. We do ask that if you submit photos please make sure that you have the parent’s permission to print photos of their children. We also need to ask that you keep activities, photos and puzzle items centered around our nature and our mission statement. Email submissions to, or for more information contact Carmen@valleygreenjournal.com.


Mission Statement: Our mission is to foster grassroots connections, locally and globally, to help grow caring communities based on sustainable agriculture; we emphasize living in concert with nature and conserving lands, waters, and wildlife.


Feel free to download and print these pages out. Enjoy!
