Environmental Education


The NRD offers many educational services to enlighten youth and encourage their curiosity about nature and the outdoors. We do much of that ourselves through various classroom presentations and programs, but we also have resources such as outdoor classroom grants, a lending library, scholarships for both educators and students and much more to support educators and help them better meet curriculum needs.

Over 2,000 people have attended our Family Nature Nights in the past year. Requests for Family Nature Nights are already coming in for next school year. Call and request a Family Nature Night for your school today!


Spend quality time outdoors this summer by requesting an NRD field trip for your group. NRD field trips are a great way to enjoy and learn about nature first hand!

We can tailor activities to your specific educational needs. Contact the NRD.
