Friends & Education

Our environmental education programs immerse students in nature and help inspire them to love and care for the earth. A typical school day program introduces students to the biodiversity, life histories and ecology of native plants, wildlife and habitats through experiential and hands-on learning activities. Students also explore the significance of national wildlife refuges and the value of conservation. The programs are designed to be sensitive to the cognitive abilities and emotional development of participating students. The programs emphasize scientific understanding, sensory awareness and creative expression.
