For Educators

Kids with their projects

Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge welcomes the use of its resources for environmental education purposes and stresses activities where students are active participants, not passive listeners.

The primary purpose of the refuge's Environmental Education program is to motivate people to learn the role of management in the maintenance of healthy ecosystems and to conserve and enhance our fish and wildlife resources. By using the refuge for structured educational activities in an outdoor classroom atmosphere, students will more fully appreciate and understand the natural world. The education activity should focus on the natural environment and the individual's role in it.
