In mid-May the Children & Nature Network, in collaboration with dozens of partners, disseminated a non-scientific survey to better understand how COVID-19, and resulting restrictions, have influenced the value their constituents place on nature as well as how their constituents view changes in the value society places on nature.
Here, you can find the results of the survey. About 500 people, mostly nonprofit leaders and formal or informal educators, responded to the survey. They were 78% female, 84% white and primarily from western and midwestern cities and suburbs; 43% reported household incomes over $100,000 per year. In examining the survey data, we felt that it was important to consider the responses in the context of who responded: primarily white, affluent women working in the environmental education and nature connection field.
