Out-of-School Time programs
We are currently working to try and bring more rich and engaging after school programs to our city's green spaces. While many exist as part of the city's Community Schools and key partners such as Navigation Games, Mass Audubon and Farrington Nature Linc, we believe that longer and more immersive experiences - modelled on Forest Schools that are now a mainstay in Northern Europe and the Pacific Northwest U.S. - are ripe for conversion to Cambridge's urban wilds.
This Fall we are piloting a volunteer-led weekly nature club, the OWL ("Outside We Learn") Team, at the Haggerty School, which will embrace nature play, habitat exploration, and civic engagement.
