We help campuses become climate resilient, biodiverse spaces.


Read about our innovative Green Grounds Certification, the first certification focused on eliminating pesticide use from campus grounds.

Are you a student looking to make a difference in your community? Let's eliminate pesticides + rewild your campus!

Check out our Ground Up Advocacy Bootcamp to learn how you can fight for the elimination of toxic pesticides and make a difference.

There are over 4,000 colleges and universities in the U.S., enrolling 19 million students a year, providing us with the opportunity to rewild in a very big way.


Re:wild Your Campus is leading a nationwide movement to transform campuses into vibrant, sustainable, and safe environments. Starting with these places of living and learning, we are creating a new way of living in sync with nature. We are on a mission to eliminate synthetic pesticides from all college campuses in the U.S. by 2030.  


At Re:wild Your Campus, we believe in the power of collaboration. We work closely with campus administrators, students, faculty, and local organizations to eliminate synthetic pesticides, implement organic land care, and rewild spaces through projects tailored to each campus's unique needs and goals. Our educational programming and training offerings span from workshops for students and community members which explore pesticide use and environmental justice, to our signature hands-on training for groundskeepers that outlines the basics of organic land care. Together, we can create a lasting impact and inspire change far beyond the boundaries of campus.


We do it because we know the facts and believe that every person who steps foot on a university campus has a right to be safe from toxic pesticides. Pesticides are poisons, and more than 90% of Americans have detectable pesticides in their bodies. These chemicals are devastating to human health and cause catastrophic harm to the environment. It doesn’t have to be this way, and we are committed to providing viable alternatives and rewilding campuses to improve human and environmental health, foster biodiversity, and fight climate change.
