If you’re a teacher and you’re looking for an outdoor destination where your students can learn about ecology, science and the environment, and the natural world, Tyler is an ideal destination. There are ponds to explore, meadows to meander in, insects to be observed, woods to wander in, logs to turn over, trails to be hiked, trees and leaves to be identified, wildlife to be sketched, and all manner of fruits, nuts, barks, berries, and seeds to be contrasted and compared.
We offer an extensive range of field trips and outreach programs designed specifically to meet curriculum standards for pre-school and elementary grade children. Tyler hosts upwards of 7,000 school-age children each year from school districts all across the region.
We’re happy to adapt the curriculum to meet the needs of home school groups.
