Art in nature

School Programs

Science concepts come alive with naturalist-led, hands-on learning
in your classroom – or ours.

We conduct programs for more than 14,000 children grades K-12 each year, ranging from assemblies with our wildlife education animals to group-specific field trips and after-school enrichment. College-level presentations are also available.

All of our environmental education enhances schools’ curriculum and aligns with the Commonwealth’s Academic Standards for Environment and Ecology. Additionally, our offerings support the Pennsylvania STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Initiative.

  • Instruction indoors, outdoors or both
  • Readily adaptable for specific program needs and individualized learning levels
  • Experiential learning, including Bike & Boat Adventures on the Lehigh River and hiking local trails
  • Teacher-specific workshops to help educators enhance classroom instruction
  • Peripherals provided, including binoculars, microscopes, catch nets and boxes
