Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University

To help fulfill its educational mission, the Arnold Arboretum offers nature programs with a focus on plant science to preschool and elementary children and their teachers. Through its unique relationship with the City of Boston, the Arboretum has been increasingly committed to improving local science education. The programs emphasize depth over breadth, and consequently field study programs are offered to approximately 1,500 students annually. In a small group setting that emphasizes inquiry and hands-on learning, students receive increased attention with a well-trained volunteer as their guide through the landscape. Teachers may also elect to take their students on a self-guided tour.
