Distance Learning

Combined Shape Copy Created with Sketch.

NatureBridge invites you and your students to learn and explore in our reimagined virtual classroom. With a NatureBridge educator as your guide, students will participate in interactive lessons that connect them to environmental science, national parks and the natural world in their own community. 

Each lesson will integrate science and social and emotional learning while ensuring equitable and inclusive experiences for all students. Programs are structured so that students can:

  • Practice scientific inquiry skills
  • Understand and experience interconnections
  • Value environmental stewardship
  • Engage in fun, interactive activities to promote learning and movement
  • Feel empowered to ask questions and think critically 
  • Develop an interest in science and the outdoors

NatureBridge is committed to supporting teachers, students and families during this unique school year and while we cannot welcome students in-person to our national park campuses, we hope to see you in our virtual classroom soon!

Teacher Testimonials

All was great! From the icebreakers to digging in to the material. I wanted to explore all the ecosystems! Integrating the social studies elements into the material created an enriching robust presentation. I am looking forward to the next session and now I want to sign other classes up!
