SOMETHING YOU MAY NOT KNOW!!!  We provide conservation oriented education and outreach programs that help develop an understanding and appreciation for the North Etiwanda Preserve and its sensitive species. 

The North Etiwanda Preserve outdoor education program introduces students to the environment in a way that supports achievement of California State Education Common Core Standards.   The program is currently free to all K-12 grade levels and is offered in partnership with the Inland Empire Resource Conservation District.  The Wildlife Trail Education Program was made possible from a Habitat Conservation Grant awarded to County Special Districts by California State Parks Office of Grants and Local Services.   Naturalists guide groups and teach lessons in ecology, native tribes and culture, geology, plant communities, conservation, species survival, and environmental change.  Lesson plans provide opportunities for students to explore, experience, and engage in activities and interactive hike experience that immerses them in scientific study.  Grade level programs can be customized to meet the education goals of each individual class in support of classroom teachings.  Lesson plans offer teachers an assortment of student worksheets and fun activities for the classroom that can be used to reinforce learning objectives either before or after trip visits to the Preserve.
