Nature Guides Monthly Meeting: Open to All!
August 12, 2016 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
An event every month that begins at 10:00 AM on day Second of the month, repeating until September 8, 2017
Nature Guides are the group of BVAS educators who work with local schoolchildren during the school year. Elementary schools that participate in the Nature Guide Program bring their classes to the BVAS Nature Center during school hours for a 1 1/2 hour tour of the museum and trail, as well as an educational lesson of the school’s choice. This is often one of the few opportunities for nature-based field trips for the schools and kids. Our bus voucher grant also helps Title I schools be able to participate in this program by covering most of the school bus costs incurred for bringing the kids to the Nature Center.
Anybody can be a Nature Guide-we have retired teachers, social workers, scientists, and business-owners. All that is needed is a passion for teaching kids about nature. Come to our meetings and see what we’re all about!
