School and Youth Groups

Canopy Classroom

Looking to get your students out of the classroom and into the trees? Our Canopy Classroom experience, which can be tailored to the specific needs of your students, dives into the science behind ziplines as well as forest ecology and conservation.

Programs can include participating in a Canopy Tour to experience first-hand concepts in STEAM (engineering principals, gravity, friction, etc), and/or exploring concepts in ecology, conservation, and stewardship, covering life cycles, nutrient cycling, ecosystem services, and human impact. Handouts and classroom activities to engage students will be provided.

We’re also happy to come into the classroom to cover these same topics, either to be part of the curriculum leading up to a day with your students coming out to experience the canopy first-hand, or as a stand-alone event.

Canopy Classroom programming is available for groups as few as 8 and as many as 32 students per day.

We’ve also come out and given talks on Women in STEAM and have had several groups of teachers come out to experience the Canopy Tour as part of NEOEA Day. Reach out to us if you’d like us to develop a program that’ll be a good fit for your classroom.
