Find Nature Nearby with Free NatureFind iPhone App

In an age where (almost) everything can be brought right to you, either on the web, with home delivery of goods, or instant movies or games on demand, getting outside really ought to be more of a priority for families.

And with a new free iPhone app from NatureFind, users can find nature related events and places nearby, making it easy for you to get the family outside.

NatureFind features over 9,000 nature-related places and events, including parks, nature centers, zoos, and botanical gardens, and highlights more than 200,000 events such as nature walks, birding hikes, water adventures, and animal and natural world programs. The events selected for the app are engaging, informative and affordable, and each NatureFind featured place or event is reviewed by an editor to assure that each one offers a quality experience.

Not only is it useful when you’re in your hometown, but NatureFind will also help you to find nature related things to do when you’re traveling.

Features of NatureFind:

  • Find events in three easy taps
  • Zoom in and get directions
  • Switch instantly between listings and maps
  • Watch demos on featured events and activities

NatureFind is available as a free download from the iPhone App Store, and works on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. The NatureFind app easily displays interactive maps and can provide directions to each location.

    Very cool. Can’t wait to try this program out. So far I’ve been initially excited then disappointed by most environmentally themed applications. Hope this one is better.

    not trolling or trying to be a douche, but hey, a self-proclaimed treehugging dirt-worshiper promoting iphone apps?! c’mon…

      Yep, a self-proclaimed treehugging, dirt worshipping blogger that uses the internet quite a bit for all sorts of things, including making a living. And no, I don’t have an iPhone, or any other kind of smart phone. I’m all in favor of technology if it serves us, and not the other way around.

    Pretty cool app. I already found a few nice places around LA. Thanks!

    Can’t try it out because I don’t have iPhone, but the idea is interesting. My guess though is that most of nature-related places reside in US and I would not find any in my country. 🙂
