To help school teams envision potential
uses and designs for an outdoor area,
we've created four unique demonstration
schoolyard plantings at the Andrus Learning
Center, our children's education facility.
Each Learning Habitat is a modest, simple,
low-maintenance landscape featuring
different plants and links to school
curriculum. Plan a visit to tour them all
in person, or find the plant lists, designs
and curriculum links for each Learning
LEARNING HABITATS FOR SCHOOLS
People often ask us for ideas and assistance with planting projects at schools. Having an outdoor "learning habitat" available just steps away, right in the schoolyard, is indeed a powerful way to open the door for experiential learning far beyond what is possible in a one-time visit to a natural area. Seasonal change and unexpected occurrences along with ongoing observation and data collection will fuel curiosity and science discoveries about our living world.
