Environmental Education Exploration

To capitalize on children’s natural curiosity to discover new  things, we have developed programs which allow them to learn through visual, auditory,and tactile experiences.  Our goal is to provide hands-on learning activities focused on the environment of the Sonoran Desert and sustainability while supporting the academic standards set by the Arizona State Board of Education. Programs are grade specific and encourage students to apply scientific thinking which will enable them to strengthen skills they will use every day such as problem solving,   team work, exploration, identification, and more.

Homeschool Days

Growing with Gardens
Thursday, November 9

Since people have been on Earth, there has been a relationship between humans and plants. The earliest gardens were grown for practical reasons; people grew herbs or vegetables to live. As humans became more civilized, gardens evolved to classify the rich and were viewed as art through the selection and arrangement of the plants. In more recent years gardens have served as a foundation for scientific inquiry. This program will embrace the past, present, and future of gardens through hands-on activities and experiments. Register online
