Bee Nice: Anti-bullying in Nature A hands-on, activity-rich program based on examples from Nature, American Indian Teachings, and Team-building exercises to learn that cooperation builds a community, but Bullying tears it all down. Ranger Eric is joined by a Uaian, an Arawak Taino Indian!! You'll also meet our two Therapy Dogs, Gangsta and Bailey to help us with some of the activities.

Team-Building Why would an environmental organization teach team-building exercises? Because solving our looming environmental crises rests in our own hands. We must learn to work together, to lead, to follow, and to celebrate our differences. Start the year off right with these fun, lively team-building activities that give students a chance to show off their left AND right brains, and hopefully get them outside in the process. Perfect for the start of a new school year or a new summer camp session.
Exploring Your Local Habitats
Wildlife around your School and Neighborhood Learning about plants and animals is cool, but learning it from a real Wildlife Biologist like Ranger Eric is ever better! Depending on the grade level and student abilities, we can use real field census techniques and equipment, and even generate a species list for your school with which future classes can add and compare results.
