Our Growing Glaciers programming develops intermediate knowledge and comprehension of nature and teaches respectful interactions with the environment. This program continues to build on contact, observation, and exploration, as well as incorporating hobby introduction and classification activities.

A program for intermediate learners aimed at developing naturalistic intelligence and building teamwork skills. The program pairs nature-focused curriculum with hands-on, group outdoor activities. Students will expand further their knowledge and comprehension of plants, animals, abiotic factors, ecosystems and sustainability. Through individual and group activities, students will continue to interact, observe, explore, and classify their environment, as well as apply and analyze their learnings to physical settings.
