For Schools & Teachers

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.

All our programs are accessible, culturally responsive, and flexibly designed to respond to the needs of students.
