What NWF - SCRC does:
Creating innovative outdoor classrooms: NWF is a leader in school-based environmental programs, including the development of Schoolyard Habitats on 22 campuses in the Austin school district and more than 40 in Houston. This year, with generous support from dozens of donors and hundreds of volunteer hours of labor, we created and opened Discovery Hill, an innovative half-acre Demonstration Schoolyard Habitat and outdoor classroom at the Austin school district’s Health and Science Resource Center. The district is now using Discovery Hill for student field trips and to train teachers, curriculum specialists, and administrators on how to use outdoor nature-based education to advance science learning in the classroom.
