Moorcroft Forest Trail, The Nature Collective in Second Life

The Nature Collective is a Second Life group created with the goal of cultivating a community around sims, spaces and projects which share a common focus on nature. It is our hope to foster a movement to help people engage and reconnect with the wonder and joy of nature, in the virtual world and beyond.

At it’s core, The Nature Collective is a group, or a collective if you will, of nature-based regions and locations in Second Life – but we are so much more than that. We encourage exploration of our member locations through our various events like our Shutterbug Club, Coffee Collective, Trails ‘n Tails and our bi-annual hunts. Many of our locations are focused on real environmental issues and are working to educate people and make an impact. Whether we are nature creators, nature explorers or both, we care about nature in all of its forms and are doing what we can to make a difference and help people connect with it both in Second Life and in our day-to-day lives.

If you are a nature lover please feel free to join our in-world group and Discord server to explore or promote your discoveries and meet fellow like-minded nature lovers. If you’re a nature creator and would like to join The Nature Collective, please read the Nature Collective criteria first to make sure your space fits the criteria. If it does, you can fill out an application here: Nature Collective Application.

Benefits of TNC membership include notice posting rights in both our inworld group and Discord server, entry into multiple lists of explorable locations (Discord and our website) and your place added to the Explorer Hud (updated every Friday). Your location becomes eligible for (if applicable) for our Coffee Collective, Trails ‘n Tails and Shutterbug Club events as well as other TNC events designed to highlight our member locations. In addition, you will reap the benefits of our extensive advertising and marketing, our network of like-minded creators and a growing and respected community.
