Modules at rare

Home to over 24 habitat types, rare is an ideal location for curriculum based outdoor activity.  Module design is such that students will visit different habitat areas of rare as they return each year.  Experiencing rare in such a way will provide students with the opportunities to develop the knowledge, skills, values, and motivation necessary to become responsible environmental citizens.  The “bigger picture” will be a key underlying theme to rare’s programming. Students will understand that the actions of today will greatly affect the outcomes of tomorrow.

An integral part of our educational module is the Chain of Learning program, giving students a link to innovative discoveries at every stage of learning. Current research at rare provides the content for the “Chain of Learning” program. Researchers develop restoration and bio-inventory projects, passing their knowledge to university and high school students who then undertake hands-on projects to pass their new knowledge on to elementary students.  At rare, all students play an active role in advancing environmental research and education.

Our school modules are designed and facilitated by our Education Team, which includes certified teachers with experience developing and delivering environmental education programs.
