Just for Teachers

Our hope is to broaden the horizon of K-12 students, teachers, and families while bringing them closer to the natural world as they engage hands-on in education in our living laboratory and to encourage a direct experience outdoors.

Our educational programs take the habitats found in Wildcat Park and combine them with best practices in teaching and environmental studies. Our hands-on, field-based programs are guided by National and State Education Standards, teacher input, and are taught by caring, committed Naturalists and volunteers.

Each trip is different as we experience the seasons and cycle of life at the park and every visit delivers sound science and thought-provoking lessons that align with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) learning. The Audubon Center opens students' eyes to the important issues and shows them ways to care for their world around them. Students will leave with their interest sparked and teachers with new ideas and inspiration for many lessons to come.

If you do not see a program listed that meets your needs, just ask! We can develop and personalize specific programming to meet your classroom or school requirements.
