The Miami Valley Leave No Child Inside Chapter of the Ohio Leave No Child Inside Collaborative ( ) has been active since 2008 with an interagency cooperation model with these goals.

•        Children are playing independently outdoors

•        Children are mentally and physically healthy

•        Children understand that they are a part of nature and want to protect it


Those who have common interest in working with youth and building appreciation of nature are encouraged  to become partners of our local Miami Valley Leave No Child Inside Chapter.  As a partner, you and or your agency would

•             Provide a logo (if possible) that can be used with MVLNCI promotional materials as opportunity allows showing community support for the MVLNCI efforts. 

•             Help MVLNCI promote our events to your specific audiences.

•             And provide a contact person that is listed on a shared excel MVLNCI partner list.

Partners also champion projects they bring to MVLCNI for collaboration and help. Any partner is welcome to approach the group with projects that help create and promote youth access to nature.  And partners are asked to share their best practices for helping children connect to nature with the community. Here is some background information to help you with this decision.


Five Rivers MetroParks has been a founding and driving member from the start and with our MVLNCI partners have organized National Get Out Doors Day events, collected 28 local municipality signatories to the Ohio Children’s Outdoor Bill of Rights and have provided MVLNCI Summits in 2012, 2013 and 2014 to assist the larger community in building access to nature for youth. 

You can visit our facebook page  which is an easy way to share more information.

And you may visit our partnership page as we are also part of the Ohio Leave No Child Inside Collation.   Be sure to check out the other chapter region web pages as they all have great information and tools to help get kids outside especially the Central Ohio and Cincinnati regions.

Look for our flyer of our next MVLNCI event, June 6-7 Safe Routes to Play as an example of our work, to register to attend and to help us promote this event.
