Environmental Education

Ranger/teacher backpack

The growing Environmental Education program is made possible largely through donations from individuals and private organizations that support National Parks. These donations help to fund teacher workshops and curriculum materials such as:

  • printed materials for teachers to use in the classroom
  • development of new activity guides
  • teacher "give-a-ways" including books about the Everglades, posters, and laminated plant/animal cards to support educational activities
  • PowerPoint projector for presentations

For students participating in our curriculum-based education programs:

  • Everglades National Park patches
  • Wristbands that say "I camped at Everglades National Park!"
  • Certificates of participation with coupons to return to the park with their family
  • craft supplies for related projects

Some program props directly impact the learning experience for schoolchildren. These include:

  • alligator skull replica
  • panther skull replica
  • crocodile skull replica
  • microscopes
  • tents for the camping program
  • dip nets, bug boxes, identification cards for wet walks and pond studies
  • flashlights and batteries for night hikes
  • laser pointer for star programs

Among these essentials are bus transportation to bring students to Everglades National Park for curriculum-based educational programs and other specific items we have and will continue to purchase.

These are some of the many ways the Environmental Education program is assisted by donations. more...
