About the Program
The mission of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Schoolyard Habitat Program is to get students across the country outside to experience nature. To accomplish this mission the program helps schools create natural spaces on their grounds where students can connect with the outdoors, using it as a classroom to observe, draw, write, think and question. In Connecticut the program is a partnership between U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Audubon Connecticut and the Long Island Sound Study.
