We provide environmental education programs. Our goal is to connect people with nature through direct experience. Our installations of plant communities show how insects and birds depend on native plants for homes and food. Most of our educational programs require hands-on physical activity. When program participants put their energy into the learning process — touching the soil, tasting a leaf, holding a caterpillar, listening for birds — it changes how they perceive nature. The impact is long-term as people learn how nature works, how to manage natural systems, and the value of ecosystem services.
