Students develop a sense of place, belonging, and community connection. Through our strategic educational partnerships, we support nature-based educational experiences on our conservation farm.
Working in strategic partnership with Grayslake High School District 127, we enable collaborations across subject areas and hands-on learning to provide students with relevant, engaging and authentic educational experiences.
On our farm learning campus, students see systems interacting and can add value and design for sustainability. Our work includes field trips, work-based learning, and internship opportunities.
Students discover, engage and get curious.
