Outdoor nature education changes lives. Teachers tell us about the lasting impact of the outdoor adventures their students share. Beyond lifelong memories, these trips form the bonds of new friendships, improve classroom participation, and increase academic achievement.
The experiences kids have here at Dunes Learning Center make them better students, and better people.
It’s magic when you see a kid connect with nature in the dunes! Whether they are taking a walk through time, investigating different habitats, striving for zero food waste at meals or weighing both sides of an environmental dilemma, young people are inspired to make a difference — to choose to behave responsibly to protect and preserve the natural world.
Science comes alive for kids at Dunes Learning Center!
Immersed in a National Park, kids trade screen time for green time as they explore the world around them. In an increasingly digital age, kids need hands-on science experiences.
You can light a spark and help more children fall in love with nature. Please make your gift today!
