School Brochure

Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary has been providing environmental education to the Martha's Vineyard school district since the 1970s. Our programs offer Island students the opportunity to experience nature and wildlife through hands-on learning outside and in the classroom.

Each program is aligned with the Massachusetts Department of Education frameworks and incorporates differentiated instruction and a multi-disciplinary approach. By building awareness, we hope that children will appreciate and respect nature, develop a "sense of place," and carry an ethic of environmental stewardship through life.
