What We Do

Guardians Care. We believe rooting local seeds restores forest families to their natural connectivity. GATE TreeForce volunteers enhance wild and urban forests, and educate to curb future global damage.

Guardians Edu-Care. Research shows interests are seeded in early childhood and STEM careers double globally each year. GATE’s Learning & Edu-Care Project invests in early childhood STEM education in order to empower our next generation.

Guardians Caregive. More than 1 in 5 people are caregivers. Many experience some level of caregiver stress syndrome monthly. GATE’s caregiver support volunteers outreach to those in need offering stress reduction and family effectiveness tools.

Guardians Connect – GATE promotes deep healing connection with Nature through environmental science education, preservation and direct action experiences that build future Guardians Around The Earth.
