Discovering Your Natural Habitat

Benton County Natural Sciences Education Opportunities

Benton County OSU Extension Service in conjunction with many other community natural resource educators provide opportunities and resources for youth and adults to learn about local natural habitats and their many values and contributions.

Teacher and Community Educator Worshops provide hands on techniques to get students learning outdoors.  We provide workshops 2 - 3 times a year in colaboration with Oregon Natural Resources Education Program and the Benton County Soil and Water Conservation District.

The Natural Resource Education Guide is a compilation of agencies and organizations that offer materials, tours, presentations, workshops, and other resources to area educators. The original Guide and yearly revisions are provided to classroom teachers, club leaders, community outreach agencies, and parent and community volunteers.
