Boosting Life Science Education for Public Schools

In October, students from around Boston return to our landscape as our fall school programs begin. For over three decades, the Arnold Arboretum has offered free science programs for pre-school and elementary students from Greater Boston’s public schools as a part of our educational mission. Our Field Studies Experiences emphasize inquiry and hands-on learning with topics ranging from flower form and seed dispersal to changing ecosystems. Over 2,000 students participate each year, and many more visit for self-guided discovery. Through donor support, the Arboretum has expanded its partnership with Boston Public Schools through monthly workshops and a Summer Institute for teachers. Volunteer guides provide essential program support each fall and spring.
