About the Neighborhood Nature Program

The Neighborhood Nature program is a social emotional well being and academic enrichment program from Rochester Ecology Partners. We will engage students in nature based activities that are designed to cultivate their relationship to the natural world and their community. We will venture outside whenever possible, and bring nature into the school on days when outdoor activities are not possible. For our fall program at GCCS, students will explore the colors of autumn and learn about the changing seasons.
