School Programs

Audubon educators provide high-quality, hands-on science programming in classrooms, on our wildlife refuges and at our Nature Center and Aquarium in Bristol. Explore our offerings below! After-school programs and summer science enrichment programs are also available in a variety of formats.

If you are concerned about the cost of field trip transportation or an environmental education program, please ask! We may have grant funds to help you afford your visit. Learn more: Program and Transportation Scholarships

Teachers can enhance classroom lessons by renting an Audubon teaching kit filled with natural artifacts, tools and resources; attending a professional development workshop; or by implementing Audubon's Schoolyard Habitat Resource Guide for outdoor learning!
