The Learning Landscape environmental education program invites elementary school groups to book an Eco-Exploration Field Trip to the Roger Williams Park Botanical Center during the fall and winter, or the URI Kingston Botanical Garden in the spring, for a hands-on environmental education experience.
Students use all of their senses to explore the plants and wildlife that inhabit southern New England. Topics such as ecosystems and adaptations, seed diversity, native mammals and birds worms and decomposers, energy and more are presented in a fun and age-appropriate format. Students bring their experiences back to the classroom with seeds planted in a recycled pot and their own nature journals.
