School program on the trail at KNCAnnie's Big Nature Lesson

​Annie's BIG Nature Lesson is an environmental education program that brings children, parents, and teachers into the natural world for learning. This five consecutive day study trip is conducted at community nature centers and invites participants to immerse themselves in exploration of different habitats, learn with experts on site, observe and write for an hour each day, and make a positive difference through stewardship projects.

As many schools are unable to participate in our ANBL program during this COVID-impacted year, we are on hold with this program at this time.  We want to hear from you if you are able, interested, and have ideas for making this work this year for your classroom or school.   Please contact Jen Rice @ jrice@naturecente.org
