Growing Glaciers

(Grades 4-7)

Our Growing Glaciers programming is designed to get students more involved and adventurous with nature.  Programs are designed to promote teamwork, classroom knowledge, and develop an appreciation for nature that needs to be preserved. Students will take advanced topics on plants, animals, abiotic factors, ecosystems and sustainability. Through our programs, students will learn how to explore nature as a team and build upon the previous building blocks they have developed.
