Environmental Education Activities You Can Do at Home

With schools in flux, hundreds of area students are missing out on their field trip to the Kessler Outdoor Classroom and Nature Center this spring. So, we're bringing the classroom to you at home! We've adapted a few of our favorite environmental education activities so that your kids can participate from the safety of your home. Enjoy, and please share your experience with us on social media with the hashtag #nwalandtrust!
