The programs provided by Tenafly Nature Center have a tremendous impact on the children with whom we interact. Children learn important scientific principles in ecology and biology through exploration, experiments, investigation, interactive games, and open discovery. At the same time, children develop a love of and comfort with the great outdoors.
Many schools and families have limited resources, and their children may not be able to take part in our programs without the generosity of people like you! All of our programs supplement and enrich the science curriculum while covering environmental education concepts that are critical to understand in today's world.
Through our Adopt-A-Class scholarship program, your donation will enable children to take part in TNC's science and environmental education programs. Funds donated to our scholarship program are an investment in our communities long-term educational success.
Funds may be used across categories based on volume & type of community requests.
Sponsor a field trip for one class to enjoy an environmental education. Each trip includes our amazing hands-on programs (all correlated to NJ state standards). It has been proven that students who spend time outside in natural areas are healthier, think more clearly, and have better concentration in school - you can make this happen.
TNC to Go
Sponsor an outreach program to a classroom and enable TNC to visit a school for an engaging environmental education program. This memorable and engaging hands-on learning experience makes natural science a real part of every student's experience, embedded into their own learning space.
TNC camps provide exemplary outdoor exploration experiences for children and teens, ages 4 through 13. Our well-loved summer and school break camps help keep learning alive when school is not in session.
