The Wild Classroom

As an organization of next generation scientists, The Wild Classroom and sister site Explore Biodiversity work to promote an interest in conservation, ecology and biology in a manner appealing to our youth and young at heart.

We bring nature and adventure together to show people that by making a small effort to care for what is around, you will find that there is so much to discover and explore.

Our goal is to open the eyes of the public to science by producing action-filled nature documentaries, creating exciting lesson plans for schools and educators, and by holding seminars, presentations and photographic exhibitions.

Explore your world with videos, pictures and blogs from the Wild Classroom Exeditions.

"love My eCoach because it helps me so much in building units of study for my class. Now more than ever, this wonderful community will be my constant helper because I am a technology teacher for two elementary schools. I use the Universal builder a lot, and plan to use the survey builder very soon as well. I became a member when I was in my teaching credential program, and I loved it so much that I made a membership for my sister in Brazil (she loves it too).

Through the years, My eCoach has been here and it is strong and better than ever by providing an incredible support to teachers all over the world! Every time I receive a newsletter from Barbara my heart sings because I know she cares about all the teachers who rely on her website and community to excel in their teaching career. I say it because I rely on her and this site!

Thank you My eCoach for being here for me!"
