Virtual Sustainability Education

Our virtual programming is now live! Groundwork Hudson Valley supports and stands with educators in their endeavor to empower the next generation of environmental leaders. With no shortage of need for innovation, our lesson plans will provide educators with an array of environmental education subjects from plant anatomy to sustainable lifestyle to emergency preparedness. There are even lessons dedicated to our regional projects, such as the use of sustainable energy modeled by the Science Barge to the plants and animals along the Saw Mill River.

 

All of our virtual learning units adhere to Next Generation Science Standards.
