THE STORY:

Help plant the seeds for outdoor learning! There is a growing body of evidence demonstrating that a students’ ability to achieve in science and math is greatly enhanced when educators use the natural environment as a context for learning, particularly in an outdoor setting. This is particularly important in urban school districts like AISD that struggle to improve their students’ performance in these disciplines. Help us reverse this trend while also connecting children to nature and wildlife!

Over the last two years the National Wildlife Federation’s South Central Office has helped facilitate the installation of 22 schoolyard habitats in the Austin Independent School District. Our final project is to create a model habitat and outdoor classroom at AISD's Science and Health Resource Center but we need your support!

Consider a tax-deductible gift to help us reach our $30,000 fundraising goal so that we can continue to work with our awesome volunteers to complete this final project. Each dollar makes a difference. Find out how your donation can help us complete the demonstration habitat and outdoor classroom.
