Connect in Nature.
Inspire Our World.

The Bateman Foundation was founded to inspire a lasting relationship with nature through the lens of art. Our mission is to promote the preservation and sustainability of the environment. Through our exhibits, programs and community collaborations, we aim to protect and promote the artistic and cultural legacy of nature-inspired artists, including Robert Bateman. By noticing nature’s beauty and importance, we encourage actions to ensure the natural world is protected through three core areas: youth initiatives, ecoliteracy and environmental leadership.
