We are the hands-on ecology education experts!
Our education model is cumulative and grows with students from kindergarten through twelfth grade. Our multi-tiered, instructional approach starts with lessons we deliver in the classroom and builds toward service-learning projects to enrich the educational experience and strengthen communities.
Two ECO Educators take over a class for 30-45 minutes with indoor lessons and outdoor adventures. Topics include watersheds, restoration, food webs, animal adaptation, native plants and wildlife. All lessons are aligned with state educational standards.
Students take part in service learning projects to combine academic work with meaningful service. Our classes have taken part in wetland and stream restoration, invasive plant removal, native plantings, creating rain gardens and building outdoor classrooms. These projects are driven by student work and enthusiasm.
Funding is provided by those who support the well-rounded development of children and improved environmental awareness in local youth: Parent Teacher Associations, community sponsors, local foundations and people like you!
