SchoolsButtonWe offer school programs correlated to the Ohio Academic Content Standards. We also have programs to meet the needs of your Scout Programs, YMCA, Homeschool or other youth group. Click here for School and Youth Group Program Guide. We have also created Remote Courses, Schoolyard Nature Walks & TWC Activity Kits to address the different needs of educators during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Educators are invited to sign-up for our monthly e-newsletter to receive nature fun facts, activity sheets, schoolyard nature ideas based on the seasons and upcoming program announcements.
