Outdoor Learning Community
A typical week of an Ecologist School Day Program student will include a variety of activities. The week may start with a trip to the library, followed by a field trip to a local park to read their chosen books. Items collected on a nature walk may be cataloged using an online nature program. Volunteering may take place at a facility such as the Environmental Institute of Houston, and the week may end with a field trip to the Wolf Sanctuary. An emphasis is placed on spending time outdoors, unstructured play, and child led learning.
The Ecologist School Program is very flexible and offers the following opportunities:
Part Time Schooling
Full Time Schooling
Vocational/Social Skills Opportunities
After School Program & Workshops
Ecologist Explorers is a weekly class for children and their families. The same classes are also offered in workshop format for scouts and other groups.
Students learn about Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math, Outdoor Skills, Volunteerism and Leadership through engaging lessons using an informal Science education program called Ecologist School. Upon completion of lessons and experiences, students may earn badges in 16 areas.
We currently meet every Thursday from 4:00-5:30 and the park location changes monthly.
