The Nature Center is Walnut Bend Elementary School’s outdoor classroom. Along with teaching about growing plants for food in our vegetable garden, teachers can expand on the lessons taught in the classroom in many subjects, including writing and social studies.
One of our goals for the year is the planting of a Habitat Garden, with eventual certification as a Schoolyard Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation.
The Nature Center runs on donations of money and labor. We have volunteer workdays for the community to come out and help. Keep an eye out for notices! Be a part of making something fun and beautiful!
