Environmental and outdoor education are essential additions to a well rounded education, allowing children to fall in love with the natural world and become acquainted with natural systems—all in an environment where they can experience nature working around them.

We have created curriculum for four of our public conserved natural areas:

  • Topics ranging from geology to water qualityButternut Hill NA Outdoor Classroom South Hero 1st & 2nd Graders w parent photo permission photo by Chris Boget (4)
  • Detailed lesson plans, for various ages groups, that meet many Vermont teaching standards
  • Direct and specific instructions with guided trails maps for a fluid and easy to conduct lesson.

 

We have constructed our outdoor classrooms to be just as fun as they are educational. Our ultimate goal is to assist teachers every step of the way in order to get our children out of the classroom and learning in beautiful (and permanently conserved*) natural environments.
