Join our in-person, weekly, school year long program for grades K-6  (approx. ages 6-12) called Audubon's Forest Classroom. We integrate the outdoor classroom with rigorous academic concepts, conservation-based themes, and connection with nature. This program is designed to provide students supplemental learning to their homeschool or in-classroom education, as well as routine during this uncertain time.

Every MONDAY the same small group of students will meet with two of Audubon's Teacher-Naturalists to give us the flexibility to work in age-appropriate small groups or come together as one big class. This program will follow the model of our Forest Playschool, where children are given the opportunity to lead their days with inquiry and are supported by our Teacher-Naturalists with seasonal topics and nature mentoring. No two days look the same, but themes of cooperation, curiosity, and phenology will prevail throughout our sessions. 

Check our our Forest Classroom Blog for insight on how we spent our time!

Please email Lead Teacher, Emily Kaplita about future interest or questions.
