Nature is a laboratory for students, classroom teachers, and educators of all backgrounds. Mass Audubon's educators support students and teachers as they increase their understanding of environmental science, learn how natural systems and cycles work, and think through the relationship of humans and the natural world. By engaging directly with nature, our programs invite participants to think like scientists, engage in meaningful discussion about what they discover, and reflect on their connection to the environment.
For the 2020-2021 School Year
Mass Audubon is offering both outdoor in-person and virtual programs.
- In-person programs take science learning and exploration outside in schoolyards, community parks, and at our wildlife sanctuaries.
- Virtual classes include curriculum-based lessons for K-12 students, professional development for teachers, resources for early childhood classrooms, and live (online) animal encounters.
Our in-person and virtual programs bring the natural world to students of all ages by combining standards-based science content with the joy and excitement of learning about nature. Find programs >
