    I really think that this is quite a wonderful idea to get young children acquainted to nature at a very young age. I feel like more programs like this are especially crucial when we are living in a ecological crisis with things such as climate change, major biodiversity decline etc.

    Not to mention children of this generation being so fixated with their electronic devices and not getting as much outdoor play time as prior generations.

    I especially like the hands on learning components that this program has to offer their pupils.

    Environmental Nature Preschool – Providing quality education through hands-on experience with nature.

    Nice! Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary in Green Bay, Wisconsin has a similar program.

    Very nice! What do you know about this place and how long have they had this program?

    They've had it for a few years now. They plan to build a new preschool, but it hasn't happened yet.

    Oh ok, very nice. Why would they need to start a new one?
