We are excited to announce our new partnership with Pease Park Conservancy that allows us to offer in-person classes in the park! Join Jordan Joly on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons to earn your Ecologist School badges. Register for each month of these classes on our website calendar.

Each month will focus on activities to earn a badge from one of the 16 branches of science featured in the Ecologist School. Students can attend one or both days a week and can earn up to two badges per month. Students can also work towards becoming Certified Junior Ecologists by earning at least 10 badges and then completing a Humboldt Project, which is an ecologically focused project of their choosing, created under the mentorship of FIN staff. We have an impressive set of youth conservation leaders that have achieved this certification so far and we invite your kids to join them.

You can register for either the Tuesday or Thursday class, or both by clicking on the “join” button on our home page to become part of our community, and then clicking into the event on our website calendar to register for the class.

We believe that nature is for everyone, so scholarships are available for this and all of our programs.
