The Urban Nature Hunt is, for many of our Environmental Educators and students, the most exciting part of the Nature Discovery Program. Part 3 brings home the lessons and experiences students gained from the Nature Walk. It reinforces the idea that nature is present everywhere, supporting students in their wonder and discovery of the “wild” elements that are present in their urban neighborhoods. We find birds nests, incredible plants, insects and birds of prey, all from the sidewalks of LA’s urban neighborhoods. These on-campus science lessons encourage children to become aware of how our actions at home and school affect the world at large, empowering each student to become stewards of the environment.
The Urban Nature Hunt is an exclusive third component to the Outreach Discovery Program and cannot be scheduled independently. You may choose this component on the application and it is optional, however, if you schedule a Field Trip the WonderMobile visit is mandatory.
