Today, many people are consumed with technologies and forget about the great outdoors, which improves our overall health, reminds us of community and displays the beautiful environment that supports our lives. As our society and population grow, we need to be more aware of our surroundings, how we use them and impact them, so we can make the best choices for our environment and ourselves.
"When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.”
Our educational approach is interpretive and hands-on. Our school and public programs emphasize respect, heritage, health and sustainability of the outdoors. We receive donations and grants and work with partner organizations to support these education projects.
We offer programs for youth, adults, families and teachers, focusing on the science of wetlands and waterfowl, wildlife art, hunting and conservation. We offer classroom programs, field trips, volunteer events, restoration programs, festival activities and more!
