Are you a teacher looking to enhance your curriculum? Why not schedule an outreach
program in your classroom? Animals, food chains, ecology, Native Americans, and history are just some of the topics we offer.
Our Environmental Education Opportunities Teachers’ Guide includes a full listing of FREE programs available to McHenry County schools, as well as the Illinois Learning Standards addressed by each program. (The Conservation District is unable to provide outreach programs for out-of-county groups.) If you would like a hard copy of our guide contact the Prairieview Education Center at 815-479-5779.
Refer to the Teachers’ Guide for information on where to call to schedule an outreach program as it will vary depending on the program.
