In any season, our educators come to you for a program inside and out focused on your schoolyard habitat. Typical format includes short indoor introduction, followed by outdoor search of your schoolyard with a particular focus (see below). Students are surprised to discover details of plant/animal life in their familiar schoolyard setting. Each session is one hour.
