More Info & Registration

Our ECO (Educating Children Outdoors) Homeschool program provides a meaningful and fun learning environment in which participants are mentored in social and environmental stewardship. Each Monday, the woods and fields of North Branch Nature Center will be our classroom, where students will engage with the landscape through standards-based lessons led by our talented ECO education staff. Each session will include games, songs, stories, and activities designed to help students engage with our land and the organisms who share it.

Peer Mentorship: Our goal is to help children develop a lasting relationship with the natural world and foster a sense of place and stewardship in our local Vermont landscape. Our ECO Homeschool program has two age groups, and we believe it is important that these two groups interact to build community while practicing leadership and mentorship skills. Whether at opening and closing circles, or through group games and shared activities, older and younger students will practice learning from one another’s example and curiosity under the guidance of our expert educators.

COVID-19 Note: All of our time will be spent outdoors, only coming inside to access the bathroom or in the event of hazardous weather.  We will be following COVID-19 guidelines from the Vermont Department of Health and the Vermont Agency of Education. For more specific information, please visit northbranchnaturecenter.org/COVID
