Education at the Preserve
Blue Heronís educational lab, The Burrow, was opened to the public for the first time in 2011. A room in our building was renovated with the help of a grant from Nickelodeon to create a learning space for visitors. The grant funding allowed us to create an especially inviting environment with concrete painted floors, track lighting and new warm colors of paint for the walls. Real wooden vines and branches from the Preserve adorn the space with a host of natural objects to see and discover.
In the Burrow, we host special events, one day workshops, and professional development opportunities for teachers, tours and programs for scouts and regular classes in art, nature and science for all ages.
All our regular programs are $10 per student, unless otherwise noted. Groups with five students or less will be priced at an hourly fee of $37.50 to cover our teaching expenses. All classes are 90 minutes with a tour and program.
