The National Wildlife Federation assists schools in developing outdoor classrooms called Schoolyard Habitats, where teachers and students learn how to attract and support wildlife on school grounds. Students learn about wildlife in the outdoor classrooms, and expand their academic skills in a creative, unique and nurturing environment. For more information about creating a Schoolyard Habitat in your area, please visit NWF’s Schoolyard Habitat website. To learn about a Schoolyard Habitat that was created in Chelmsford, MA please visit the blog posting – Ribbon Cutting at the Byam Learning Garden.
