We are better than recess.
This is what we hear from our students! We visit some classrooms once a week and others once a month and its hard to tell who is more excited - us or the kids.
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!
