Welcome Educators!

This page is just for you full of hands on and creative resources!

​Thank you for making the 2019-20 school year a success! We plan to continue and grow this partnership with local area schools in the 2020-21 academic year and we couldn't be more excited!

This page will serve as your home base for links to virtual field trips, sign up forms for programs, and registration for contests and prizes! 

We look forward to working with all of our wonderful educators in the upcoming year.

Overview Of Programs

All programs are implemented by one of our Educators. Classes can come to us or we can even come to you to implement a program in your classroom. 

 

The goal of our programs is to:

- share the history of this unique region.

-inspire environmental stewardship, critical      thinking, and a well-rounded mindset.

-prepare students as they continue to the next chapter of their lives.

-focus on wetland ecosystems, our waterways, and the natural balance of sensitive habit.

 

We want to engage students in the material they learn in class through hands-on activities and enhance the already existing curriculum being used in schools.

All educators want their programs to be successful, especially if it is your first time implementing PBL in a classroom setting. Use the form to the right to ensure your program meets all of the PBL criteria and will benefit the students.
