Since 1969 more than 328,000 sixth grade students in Hillsborough County Public Schools have experienced Nature’s Classroom, an outdoor environmental education program located on 365 acres of land along the Hillsborough River.
Through a three-day hands-on experience, students study the complex and dynamic ecosystem surrounding the Hillsborough River. They hear about the challenges facing the environment and learn how the health of the river affects all of us by influencing things such as our drinking water supply. Most importantly, students learn how their actions now and in the future can impact the environment and the community.
