Kids in Nature

We support people and programs—both at the sanctuary and off-site— that connect children with nature, instilling in them a love for the world’s invaluable wild places and wildlife.

Educational Programs at Salt Creek Nature Sanctuary

We host school and other youth groups (such as scout troops) to explore the sanctuary’s woods, fields, meadows, and other natural areas.

Off-Site Educational Programs

We sponsor field trips that allow students and other youth groups to visit natural areas—like forests, fields, streams, and ponds—at nature centers, parks, sanctuaries, outdoor education centers, and other sites. We help pay for transportation and admission fees (where applicable).

Off-Site Facilities

We also help teachers and students build nature centers on their school grounds—centers that include trails, observation areas, and study sites. These centers enable students to conduct regular, long-term observations on natural systems.
