Programming for Schools

Teachers, bring your students for real‐world, contextual learning in science, math, social studies, and other subjects. 


Your visit with your students will utilize our engaging site features, support state education standards, motivate learning, and invigorate your teaching practice.

We offer engaging, hands-on learning experiences in these content areas:

  • elementary groupwetlands
  • watershed protection and stormwater management
  • energy conservation and alternative energy technology
  • sustainable building design
  • scientific observation, and more!

Field trips can include a variety of instructional methods, both indoors and out, including tours, exploration of our interactive exhibits, dynamic presentations, hands-on activities, interpretive trails, and other field experiences.  See below for the list of experiences we’ve already developed and piloted.
