Mission, Vision and Values


the p.i.n.e. project’s mission is to foster confidence, competence, resilience and connection to nature through transformative outdoor experiences for people of all ages in Toronto, Ontario and beyond.

To achieve this we deliver programs focused on building relationships between self, others, and the environment. Using music, drama, storytelling, naturalist studies, stewardship, survival skills, outdoor adventures, intergenerational learning, games, and play we weave a “culture of nature connection”. This empowers our mantra: be more, need less.


Healthy people deeply connected to and caring for themselves, others and the natural environment.


The p.i.n.e. project has several core values, each helping to facilitate our mission:

  • Gratitude
  • Awareness
  • Connection
  • Community
  • Life-long learning
  • Resilience
  • Fun!
