Expanding Environmental Education

For over four decades, Mohonk Preserve® has been providing innovative education programs that have gotten over 100,000 children into nature. Our award-winning NatureAccess® program provides quality outdoor and environmental education for people of all ages and abilities, and our summer camps help children discover the wonders of the natural world. Our many diverse programs and events offer something for everyone, from recreationists to naturalists-at-heart, supporting lifelong learning and strengthening connections to the land.

In 2020, we celebrated 35 years of curriculum-based school field studies. Additionally, the Preserve’s outreach programs bring the natural wonders of the Shawangunk Ridge and its wildlife right into schools, libraries and community centers.

We continue our work to engage visitors in ways that enhance understanding, expand access, and strengthen their commitments to nature in our community, region, and world.

Trainings in Environmental Education for Teachers and Organizations

Mohonk Preserve offers workshops for educators on a variety of topics in environmental and outdoor education, often presented at conferences, as well as varied topics in accessibility and Universal Design for Learning (UDL).
