K-12 Environmental Education Programs
Our experiential programs are designed with a balanced approach of meeting teacher’s needs in the classroom and introducing students to the Reserve’s research and stewardship activities. Our education program’s philosophy is that students, while onsite, are immersed in experiential, problem-based learning opportunities that focus on the scientific process. In addition to teaching students responsible ways to utilize technology for research, we provide students with equipment relevant to what science professionals utilize.
