introducing beth and craig
Cofounded by Beth Wegner and Craig Wiegardt, Nature's Schoolyard is a teaching resource for grades K-5. We offer meaningful learning experiences to help parents and teachers develop the whole child. We believe every subject can be taught in the outdoors—the world's greatest laboratory. Our classroom projects, lesson ideas, outdoor activities and educational videos teach young people about the wonders of our planet—encouraging them to enjoy and protect it for a lifetime.
Nature's Schoolyard is a forward-thinking, earth-friendly website with several goals:
> Bringing families together to enjoy the wonders of the natural world
> Giving young people the tools to play, explore, discover, and dream
> Bringing friends and families together in the kitchen and garden
> Inspiring schools and families to start their own children's learning garden
> Giving parents and educators a place to connect and share
