Our Education Team provides free programs for kindergarten through college grade levels, all satisfying Missouri Grade Level Expectations in science. Additional programs are available for adults, suitable for garden clubs, social groups, etc. Subjects include birds, owls, butterflies, bats, plants or other customized subjects based on your need or request. For questions or to schedule a program, please call Lisa Nansteel at firstname.lastname@example.org or (636) 391-4898.
If you enjoy working with children and adults and talking about nature, why not join the Education Committee. We are looking for new people to work with us and give presentations on all kinds of subjects. We talk with school children, civic groups, scouts, libraries, churches garden clubs and anyone else interested in nature. We just completed a full day of activities for some Junior Girl Scouts to allow them to earn their Wildlife Badge. We do not require you to have any special knowledge--we will train you and give you outlines for our programs. Our new people do not give programs until they are comfortable with a topic. For more information please contact Lisa Nansteel at email@example.com or (636) 391-4898.
