The National Wildlife Refuge System is awarding $5,000 to cover start-up costs of new Nature of Learning programs, as well as $3,000 to support existing programs. Nature of Learning programs use National Wildlife Refuges and other natural areas as outdoor classrooms to promote a greater understanding of local conservation issues; encourage an interdisciplinary approach to learning that enhances student achievement; use field experiences and student-led stewardship projects to connect classroom lessons to real world issues; and involve a partnership among local schools, community groups, natural resource professionals, and local businesses.
