School & Youth Programs

One World Conservation Center hosts numerous school and youth programs. School field trips for elementary school and middle school youth introduce the children to the habitats of the Greenberg Reserve, conservation principles, and even forestry and mapping techniques.
High school classes are active in marking trails for trail expansion, and with the use of GPS devices, marked an area of the woodlands designated for invasive species control in our Forest Management Plan. The Center for Career Development horticultural and forestry programs have actively participated in projects at our Reserve and One World Conservation Center, providing excellent field experience for the student participants.

One World Conservation Center has been active in hosting after school visits from elementary students that are part of the Mosaic program of Southwestern Vermont Supervisory Union. Curriculum has ranged from demonstrative programs on the life cycle of amphibians, to learning about biology through examination of animal skulls, to animal tracks, bird calls, and native plants.

We also participate with the schools in summer programs and have twice hosted Rosie’s Girls, where middle school girls designed, constructed, and installed six benches in our Reserve, and the Tutorial Center’s Youth Agricultural Program, where students performed trail maintenance to keep the trails clear and beautiful.

We are often able to offer transportation and cover other costs of the youth and school programs through generous grants from local businesses and philanthropists!

If you are a teacher, school official, or involved with summer or youth programs and wish to discuss opportunities for visits to One World Conservation Center, give us a call at (802) 447-7419.
