Outdoor time not only gives children (and Mamas!) exercise and reduces stress, but also stimulates creativity and allows them to develop important executive function and coping skills.
→ More than 100 million Americans don’t have a park within a 10-minute walk, and as a Mama, that is simply unacceptable.
→ Climate change leads to more, and more devastating wildfires, more insect-borne disease, drought, and potential food shortages.
→ Air pollution causes low birth weight, damages children’s still-developing lungs, developmental problems, cancer, and even premature death.
→ Urban sprawl, commerce and drilling claim the equivalent of a football field every 2½ minutes in the West.
→ Colorado has already warmed 2 degrees in the last 30 years.
We equip women to raise their voices, even if imperfectly, on the issues they care about – be it signing a petition, issuing statements, opinion editorials/letters to the editor, in-person (or Zoom!) lobbying efforts, and connecting as a community to celebrate our wins – on the trail, in the park, or on the water.
We advocate, as one voice, for national and state safeguards that align with our core values of protecting our climate, public lands, and clean air, because we know without strong laws our families’ futures are at risk.
We hold decision makers accountable for their promises, their votes, and their mistakes.
Are you passionate about the healthy future of your kids and families? Are climate, clean air, and access to our public lands a priority for your quality of life? Then join us! And let’s create a movement of women who will stand up for our kids, families, each other, and our future.
All new members ($50+) through November 3 will receive a free Mountain Mamas sticker, hat, and 13 Action Tips for Mountain Mamas!
