Many Ways We Educate

[acc_item title=”School Field Trips”]The Howard County Conservancy’s school programs educate students about nature and the DSC_4627-XLenvironment through programs and classes, restoration projects and demonstrations, and service learning opportunities. Programs are aligned with Howard County Public School curriculum to provide an outdoor extension of classroom learning. Each year, approximately 10,000 school children take part in the Conservancy’s education programs. These include specially developed on-site and in-school programs ranging from nature walks, environmental activities, citizen science and games. In addition to programs for grades K- 12, the Conservancy offers pre-school programs, programs for scouts, and programs for home-schoolers. Please call the Conservancy for information about these programs or to schedule a trip.

[acc_item title=”Summer Camps”]We offer eight weeks of summer camp at two locations – Mt Pleasant and Belmont. Our nature camps encourage children to learn about Howard County’s ecology and natural history through fun and exciting hikes, experiments, stories, and hands-on exploration of our nature centers and parkland.  Camps will include outdoor skills and all-camp activities as well. More details regarding our 2016 camps will be available in January.

[acc_item title=”Public Education Programs”]Our many public events offer educational opportunities for all ages through guided hikes, lecturers, and other programs available at both of our locations.
