Children enjoying a field trip in the Norwalk Islands.

The refuge offers opportunities for schools, scout troops, home schoolers and others to participate in quality staff-led environmental education programs.

The Nature of Learning is our most successful program. It provides two classroom-based environmental education lessons and one field trip and lesson on the refuge. The curriculum for the Nature of Learning is based on Connecticut state standards and Next Generation Science Standards for the 4th grade, and it may be adapted for other groups.

People with interest in these or other educational opportunities should call the Visitor Services Manager at 860-399-2513 for more information.
