The Schoolyard Habitat Program brings natural science exploration to quad-city area schools. The program restores under-utilized spaces of school campuses into rich, native habitats and outdoor classrooms, encouraging students to learn about scientific concepts through experiential learning.
Each partner school is supplied with standards-based curriculum for grades K-8 and two years of one-on-one instructional support by Highlands Center for Natural History staff.
