Our All Aboard for Nature program aims to diversify and expand access to nature by getting underserved communities outdoors to enjoy the benefits provided by our public lands and open, green spaces.

Our team, including trained California Naturalists, provides shuttle service to area parks and beaches for recreation and lunch and to learn about nature.

Community Needs

  • 51% of Los Angeles residents do not have a public park or open space within walking distance of their home.
  • Millions of urban LA County residents are without backyards, vehicles, or nearby parks, and lack access to nature.
  • The Angeles National Forest/San Gabriel Mountains National Monument provides 70% of LA County’s open space, yet there are no public transit routes into these public lands.
  • Find out more about the need for more parks and green space and access to nature from the Los Angeles Countywide Parks and Recreation Needs Assessment.
