New Hampshire Audubon, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service New England Field Office, New Hampshire Project Learning Tree, and NH Fish and Game have joined efforts to support schools that want to achieve the benefits of nature-based studies for student development and learning. Our goals are to nurture future environmental stewards by connecting kids with their local environment and to enliven learning through nature.
Examples of projects that have been funded by the partner organizations in the past include the establishment of pollinator gardens, creation of outdoor learning areas, installing solar-powered bird baths and replanting of school grounds with native plants that enhance wildlife habitat. Other types of projects eligible for support include trail or pond building, citizen science activities, and water or bird feeding stations.

We are available at no additional cost to help plan and implement your schoolyard projects.
