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 sims 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, soon-to-be Field Trips 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 your space fits the criteria, you can apply here: Nature Collective Application. If your location meets the requirements, a member of our team will be in contact with more information and a single-prim group joiner to be placed at your landing/info area.
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 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.
Speaking of our Discord server, it’s got both nature explorers and Second Life nature creators and has grown into a great community of nature lovers from all over the world! Come join us and get first-hand information on your favorite nature spaces, information regarding new nature spaces and more! Nature creators, come network with other creators and connect with the people visiting your spaces. We hope to see you there!
