School & Youth Group Programs

Hands-on, curriculum-based learning in nature's outdoor classroom

Guided school and youth group field trips at Greenwich Audubon Center emphasize student participation, first-hand experiences in the field, and inquiry-based learning methods. School group programs are coordinated with local curriculum objectives and the National Science Education Standards. We offer short programs and extended day programs, which can include an after-lunch workshop.

School and youth group programs are offered throughout the year and are a great way for students of all ages to explore and learn naturally through hands-on activities and the exploration of the plants and animals of the pond, forest, and field habitats along our outdoor trails.

We currently offer five School and youth program topics:

Year Round: Plants & Partners; Water, Erosion, and Watersheds; Bird Migration

Fall: Seasonal Changes

Spring: Freshwater Ecology
