The UNF Environmental Education Programs provide school children with the unique opportunity of learning more about wildlife and nature while outdoors. All of their education programs are ranger guided and begin with an introduction to the University of North Florida and the UNF Wildlife Sanctuary.
The Environmental Education School Programs at the University of North Florida are designed for grades K-9. UNF strives to bring youth and the community into nature, hosting their programs in the 382-acre Sawmill Slough Preserve on campus. Along their five-mile trail system, they teach participants about the local plants, animals and habitats that make up the preserve.
Every program can be adapted to suit the age group of your students. Accommodations for students with special needs available.
Programs take place every day, usually starting at either 9 or 10, and ends around 12 or 1; however, hours are flexible.
