Optimize Your Outdoor Space
Consultations with Audubon
Audubon naturalists help individuals, schools, and groups improve their outdoor spaces. We can help with gardening and landscaping for wildlife, nature trail development, or invasive species identification.
Outdoor Learning Spaces
Do you have a nature trail or available green space in your yard or schoolyard? From pre-school through high school, outdoor learning spaces enhance the teaching and learning of all subject matters. Using an outdoor learning space as an integrating context across the subject areas will both support and deepen the quality of instruction and student engagement. Learning becomes real, fun, hands-on, interdisciplinary and relevant. It also helps teachers meet state and national standards.
Outdoor classrooms come in a variety of shapes and sizes depending upon a school's available resources. The Audubon Society of Rhode Island now offers consulting and assistance to schools looking to create outdoor learning spaces. Our education staff has years of experience developing environmental and science curriculum as well as teaching in outdoor spaces. Audubon can help layout a nature trail, set-up a bird feeding station, design engaging curriculum, train teachers and much more.
