Facilitated Education Programs

The Biodiversity Education Center (BEC) offers a variety of group activities that help learners connect with nature. Choose from a suite of hikes, lessons, and games to create a customized educational experience. Activities may be used individually or in combination to meet your learning goals, accommodate group sizes and/or time duration. Most activities can be completed in 30 minutes, and some require 1 hour. You may find descriptions of each activity in the Facilitated Education Planning Toolkit (PDF).
