Programs at Your School
Incorporate nature-based learning into your classroom, support your science curriculum, and help students discover the wonder of the natural world in their own schoolyard. We offer a variety of school-based, standards-aligned programs that will get students exploring science concepts in the classroom or outdoors in your schoolyard.
Students will explore the ecology of their schoolyard through hands-on activities that help develop core science practices and bring classroom content to life. Whether you have a parking lot surrounded by weeds, a soccer field, or a vernal pool in your schoolyard, we will make the most of it!
Give your science lab a nature-based spin. Through exciting, inquiry-based science activities, students will observe, investigate, classify, think critically, and draw conclusions about the natural world—all inside the classroom.
Our educators bring tools and samples of pond water, soil, fungi, or other natural materials that provoke wonder and engage students in hands-on exploration.
Let the natural world come to you and bring core science concepts to life with a classroom visit from native wildlife and a Mass Audubon wildlife expert. Programs include live animal observations and interactive discussions that honor the questions and observations of students while weaving in relevant science content.
Note that we work primarily with wildlife that cannot be released into the wild. Our animal availability will vary from region to region.
