Conservation Classroom Year-Long Partnership Experiences
Conservation Classroom is a unique partnership opportunity for classrooms to engage in meaningful learning experiences throughout the entire school year. This partnership includes an introduction visit in the classroom and three follow-up field trips to the center and park in fall, winter and spring. Transportation to and from the Grange Insurance Audubon Center is arranged and provided through the center. The scientific process comes alive through programs reinforcing writing, science and math skills, all the while connecting students with nature and instilling an apprecation for the environment around them. This program is generously funded by donors, allowing availability at a very reasonable cost to each classroom. A limited number of partnerships are available each year and fill quickly.
