Our Educational Mission:
The Harris Center for Conservation Education is dedicated to providing nature education experiences that invite people of all ages to develop and deepen their understanding of the Monadnock Region.
At the Harris Center, we believe in studying frogs in ponds instead of in pickle jars. Every year more than 2,500 students in 24 Monadnock Region Schools embark on expeditions that take them outside the confines of the classroom and into their neighborhoods.
We work collaboratively with teachers to design thematic programs that enrich school science studies. Themes are chosen based on each grade level's science curriculum, children's natural curiosity and interests at each developmental stage and the local natural history stories and study sites in school neighborhoods. Our programs offer active, materials-rich lessons that are based on the local landscape.
