For over five decades, the Environmental Education program at Bradford Woods has worked with young students and teachers throughout Indiana, providing hands-on experiences that encourage students to learn in, and about, the outdoors. Our goal is to enhance participants’ personal relationship with their environment by increasing knowledge and awareness of environmental processes and relationships, heightening awareness of historical and cultural influences, and promoting stewardship through educated decision making. Research has also shown that our Environmental Education program creates positive change in socio-psychological attitudes among student participants.
Day and residential programs are designed to be an extension of the classroom combining academic, social, and recreational experiences in a fun, camp-like atmosphere. Whether writing a poem about a soaring Bald Eagle, collecting aquatic insects for a biotic index, or listening to Native American legends while gazing into a starry night sky, students see their learning come alive.
Come check out a sampling of what students do at Bradford Woods by coming to one of our Environmental Education Open Houses. These two-hour sessions are designed for parents, teachers, students and families to become more familiar with Bradford Woods.
