Canopy Classroom

Emerald Necklace Outdoor Education

The Conservancy has developed a place-based, environmental education program – consistent with Boston Public School science curriculum standards as well as the state standards – to connect Boston youth to the relevance and importance of science in the real world and their daily lives and guide them to become more environmentally conscious.

The Canopy Classroom Outdoor Education Program is executed through interactive and fun environmental education/nature connection field trips that are facilitated at Emerald Necklace parks. At this time, we offer fall and spring environmental education/nature connection field trips for 3rd grade classes.
