Environmental Education

Environmental education enhances what is done in the classroom because it provides a base framework upon which understanding and research can hang. Many schools put this into their curriculum not as an extracurricular experience but as a core value.  We are sure you will see the benefit for your students.

Nature study and personal connection to the land provide a different kind of understanding that can not be learned at a desk. This outdoor education enhances what is done in the classroom because it provides a base framework upon which understanding and research can hang. Many schools put this into their curriculum not as an extracurricular experience but as a core value. Thank you for seeing the benefit for your students. Here are some of the topics and options for your group to consider.
