Earth Roots
Establishing Connections With the Environment in Early Childhood

Earth Roots brings interactive, developmentally appropriate nature programs to your classroom, library, daycare or neighborhood park. Our naturalists will inspire your 3yr old to kindergarten aged children to love nature with programs that feature interactive story times, songs, games and art activities.  Literacy and math are woven into the science content, and outdoor experiences are incorporated as often as possible, whether at Wehr Nature Center, a Milwaukee County Park setting or on your own school site.

What Teachers are Saying...

“Our parents and teachers love that each child had a
chance to use their senses and the puppet show was
informational and fun. The questions and activities
helped reinforce our curriculum.”

“Great vocabulary. Students were actively engaged,
wonderful questions that accessed prior knowledge.
Moved from basic to higher level thinking.”
