Environmental Education Teaches Many Skills

Earth Spirit educators share many lessons in their work. Most of these relate to the science and systems that control the workings of Planet Earth. However, many skills that can be applied to all areas of life are passed along through our work. Channel 2's Terry Belke speaks of these important lessons in a 2 the Outdoors piece featuring Earth Spirit teachers and students participating in a recent Winter Camp sponsored by the Orchard Park Recreation Department.

Earth Spirit staff are gearing up in anticipation of the renewal of life with a Spring Nature Festival. One of our most exciting programs for all ages is not only fun and educational, it is also a major fund-raiser supporting our ongoing educational endeavors. In addition, we have two other programs scheduled in May where we'll share the wonders of late Spring, take you out on a citizen science project and spend an afternoon of Spring fishing.

Click on over to our Events page for details on registering and join us for a Spring filled with the excitement of Nature plus learning, play, food and music!
