Environmental Education for Individuals and Families

Whether you’d like to participate in a guided walk on a local conservation property, listen to a lecture on the natural history of turkeys, have your child sharing outdoor adventures during a school vacation, or take the whole family to a maple sugaring workshop, the NRWA has a program that will interest you. Our programs are engaging, science-based, professionally delivered, and fun!

NRWA Family Workshops allow families to participate in exciting explorations together, such as a night hike to learn about nocturnal wildlife.

Programs for adults feature guest speakers with topics ranging from general interest subjects such as “Living with Local Wildlife” to technical programs such as “Surveying for Landowners.” We also present environmental films, lead walks, and organize hands-on workshops. For information on training and workshops for professionals.

For young people who are interested in learning on the job, we offer unpaid internships to high school and college students.
