Nature Unleashed

February 28 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Help your students discover what’s outside by collecting data and observations of our Missouri ecology of different ecosystems such as prairies, forests and ponds, food chain interactions within those different ecosystems, organism adaptations, and so much much more. All of this is right at your fingertips with our Discover Nature Schools Unleashed Unit designed for 3rd grade to 5th grade students – free to all Missouri teachers.

Be sure to request your free Nature Unleashed curriculum materials prior to the workshop using our Teacher Portal. To order by mail, visit our Teacher Portal homepage and click “DNS Order Form” to submit your request – allow 7-10 business days for arrival.

Also, be sure to download the free SEEK app by iNaturalist prior to the workshop.

Make sure you have your outdoor gear ready including outdoor shoes because we will be going outside for many activities!

At the conclusion of the workshop, we will review the Nature Unleashed Grant which provides funding to all Missouri-accredited schools for classroom equipment and travel reimbursement for outdoor field experiences.
