Notes from the Classroom - April 2021

Happy National Environmental Education Week! EE Week takes place this week from April 19-23, 2021 and is an opportunity to celebrate environmental education and the wonderful impact it has on people of all ages. It is also a great time to highlight the exciting job of being an environmental educator! Environmental education comes in many forms, and can be formal (such as in a classroom at school) or self-led (exploring on your own and experiencing the natural world).

During EE Week, we will be posting on our BHIC social media accounts about EE Week topics, giving our followers an opportunity to learn more about Bald Head Island and the work the Conservancy does! We will also be celebrating Earth Day this Thursday, April 22nd!

Here are some additional ways that you can celebrate EE week at home:
  • Visit a local nature or educational center. There are many to choose from!
  • Create and complete a nature scavenger hunt.
  • Participate in one of the Conservancy’s educational programs - find our schedule here.
  • Watch one of our BHIC Conservancy Connections recorded videos on a variety of animal topics! 
  • Contribute to a citizen science project such as iNaturalist. Find more information on our Instagram about iNaturalist and other citizen science projects during EE week. 
  • Get outside and ID local flora and fauna found where you live using “Seek” by iNaturalist! Find a link to download the app here.
  • Explore the NC EE website.
  • Plant a home garden! You can access our video tutorial here.
There are many different ways to celebrate National EE Week this year and we hope you choose to celebrate! Be sure to tag @bhiconservancy in your photos on Facebook and Instagram so we can see what you are up to and share!
