Educational Gardening

Education and Outreach - Presentations and workshops on water quality, wildlife, soil science, sustainability and more. Partner with local schools to achieve Green School Status. There is also a Nature Trail with two geocaches and a free little library on site at MCD.


We can help you fit environmental literacy into your already jam packed schedule. If you are just looking for resources to teach about an environmental topic, we have kits and lesson plans that you can borrow. Many of the resources we have available can be used in science, math, language arts, social studies, art, and even physical education. These lessons work with Next Generation Science Standards.















We have resources for K-12 on topics below to support environmental education:

  • Soil Health and Conservation

  • Water and Air Quality

  • Wildlife Management and Conservation

  • Native Plants

  • Trees and Forests

  • Pollinators-Bats and Bees

  • Invasive Species

  • Recycling

  • Composting
