We’re better together.

Environment and Family are Key to Our Mission

Simply stated our mission is to support Guardians – helping families and offering environmental science education that promotes deep healing connections with Nature. OUR GOAL is to grow future environmentalists for Earth.


Our Work Grows Roots

Guardians Around The Earth (GATE) is a California based 501c3 nonprofit agency founded in 2007. GATE services include: 1) environmental science awareness and early STEM education; 2) Nature conservation connections; and 3) family caregiver support. We connect people to natural environment by increasing early childhood education quality and building effective families.

We Are a Stem for Future Branches

We are volunteer Guardians of Earth – teaching environmental science to improve sustainable conservation.

We are Guardians of youth – educating teachers, parents and others in early STEM to promote future environmentalists.

We are Guardians of family – supporting caregivers in a way that deepens healing connections with Nature, with humans and our Earth.

When people support one another, there’s no limit to what we can do.




We need your support — volunteer or donate today.

Where GATE funds go:

40% Early STEM Seminars for Teachers and Parents,

40% Direct Youth Education and Mobile STEM Labs,

10% Caregiver Support,

8% Program Outreach, and

2% Fees (bank, website, insur).

We are dedicated to ensuring  fund majority is directed toward service. Thus, GATE operates in a donated space with all board, support staff and educators as volunteers.


Guardians Around The Earth is committed to the highest level of transparency. As such our nonprofit agency obtained a Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar. “GuideStar is world’s largest source of info on nonprofits.” See GATE’s nonprofit profile here: GuideStar.
