Georgia Elementary students are fortunate to have Four Winds visit their classrooms throughout the school year.
During each visit, volunteer scientists/educators provide an understanding, appreciation, and hands-on approach regarding the protection of our environment with children.
Four Winds is dedicated to helping students gain background knowledge and science skills needed to understand the world around them and the creative problem solving and citizenship skills needed to protect it.
Each month provides a different curriculum to keep children engaged and interested in the natural world. Four Winds believes individuals long for a healthy connection to the environment and to each other.
This community based educational program brings children and adults together to explore and understand nature.
Through these programs, Four Winds is helping people of all ages make meaningful connections to nature. It is these connections that will nurture and fuel us all as we work together to address the increasingly complex environmental issues ahead of us.
We must start early, by educating children, about the importance of the relationship that exists between the earth and our lifestyles.
Choices we make each and every day have an impact on the natural world and we must be knowledgeable about how we can preserve and protect for years to come.
