PreK-12 Youth & Community Programs
Education programs include K-12, adult education, events, and occasional workshops to build resilience and conservation
skills. Residents and visitors should have knowledge and skills to make informed decisions about natural resources.
Preschool-12th Grade Programs
We provide engaging, hands-on activities linked to state standards. We can customize activities to fit your curriculum. Programs are also available for youth organizations and homeschool groups. Here are some of our most popular programs:
Bring a creek to your classroom! Our stream table is a fun and exciting way for students to cover earth and biological science topics like the water cycle, erosion and deposition, and river ecology.
It's knowledge bowl for natural resources! High school students compete in teams of 5 to see who knows the most about natural resources. County winners continue on to the State Envirothon competition, where teams compete for a spot in the international Envirothon. Start preparing early, request a study bin!
