The best place to learn about the environment is the natural environment. When this place-based education is implemented, students and community members can benefit from partnerships. Each session begins with a name game so that instructors and participants are able to get to know each other. Instructors will then transition the group to participate in an interactive learning activity pertaining to the weekly theme.

Children will participate in age-appropriate activities that utilize nearby nature to teach about the environment. They will also create a fun craft or project centered on the week’s theme.  Finally, children will participate in an active game, play, and enjoy the outdoors.
