GreenUP Ecology Park School Programs

GreenUP Ecology Park provides dynamic nature-based programs that bring the curriculum to life.  Our lessons involve exciting hands-on exploration and activities delivered by experienced educators.

Students and visitors will explore and learn in a diversity of habitats including the Meade Creek wetland, native plant nursery, meadow, forest and demonstration gardens.

Curriculum-linked programs focus on a variety of environmental education themes such as soils and compost, animals and habitats, plants and trees, food gardens, insects, and many more! If there is a topic that you don’t see please contact us, and we can create a program to suit the needs of your class!

Programs at GreenUP Ecology Park are offered May through October. The subsidized cost for our programs is $10.00 per student. We also offer classroom programs too during the winter months, upon request!
