Hands-On Ecology, Sustainability, and Gardening Classes For Kids

Usdan’s woodland campus is an ideal place to experience and learn about the natural world. Led by experienced nature educators, this hands-on program helps students foster a connection with the environment through exploration, creativity, and mindfulness. At our Nature Center and Organic Garden, students learn about the plants and wildlife of Usdan, make art from natural materials, care for Usdan’s pets, grow food and other plants, learn about sustainable practices and design, and connect with other nature enthusiasts. 

Nature & Sustainability students will be outdoors all day. When it rains, they will work on projects in well-ventilated studios with windows and doors open. 

For up-to-date information on COVID procedures in the Nature & Sustainability Department, please visit our COVID Updates page.

In addition to their three-period Major, Nature & Sustainability students enjoy a rotating one-period Recreational Activity every day with their group. Visit our Recreational Arts page for more information.
