Our Better Places (“OBP”) is a collaborative program between its director, Diana Perez, and the non-profit organization Outdoor Connections. OBP is centered around three tenets, Education, Conservation, and Outreach. As an organization we want to educate people via first-hand experience about the impacts of climate change in the most susceptible areas around the world, and how to help mitigate the detrimental impacts of such changes.

“You make a living by what you get.

You make a life by what you give.”

Our Mission

We believe that through first-hand experiences, people can develop a more intimate understanding of the problems that climate change brings. Our programs cover topics like coastal rehabilitation, youth education and development, habitat restoration, and more. Together, we can leave a better world for the people of tomorrow than what was left for us.
