Outdoor School Programs
An Environmental Education Event
Ever give a high-five to a duck? How about see the world from a bug’s eye view using a magnifying glass? Use a microscope to investigate who lives in the soil? Our outdoor environmental education programs for classrooms are a fun way to incorporate science skills and outdoor fun into your class’s day!
Choose from a variety of programs tailored to meet your classroom objectives and interests! We offer environmental education experiences including live animal presentations, hands-on learning with naturalist tools, prairie ecology studies, and so much more. All class materials are provided by SELC, and brought to your school for your class!
All school-based environmental education programs run at a special discounted rate of $6.00/student for 3 hours of programming or less, and $8.00/student for 3 hours of programming or over, plus mileage to and from your school. Call or email our Environmental Education Director, Katie Chapman, at 507-763-3567; firstname.lastname@example.org for more information! (Different rates for snowshoeing/cross country skiing. See below.)
Bookings run throughout the school year, until Memorial Day Weekend. Holidays and other observed days off will not be available for booking.
All appropriate procedures for mitigating the risk of COVID-19 will be followed according to school policies.
Please see our options below for programs currently offered for schools. All school-oriented programs are one hour in length but you may do more than one program. Our outdoor environmental education programs are designed with Covid-related restrictions in mind. All class materials used are single-use, or easily sanitized between users, and will be provided by Shetek Environmental Learning Center. Classes are aligned to a variety of Minnesota state standards and are available upon request. We will practice safety measures such as physical distancing and sanitizing hygiene during classes. If we are unable to come to your school due to illness or other conflict, rescheduling is easy and flexible!
