Baltimore Woods Nature Center, the group that hosts the Syracuse City School District “Nature in the City” program, was recently featured in a radio interview on 93Q.

The “Nature in the City” program began in 2002 as a way to expose Syracuse City School District students to the natural world and green spaces. Now, the program reaches kindergarten to sixth grade students in all SCSD elementary schools! The program brings students from the classroom to neighborhood green spaces, where they participate in hands-on activities that encourage science-based learning and are tied to New York State Science Standards and the Elementary Science Core Curriculum.
 
In addition, as part of the Syracuse City School District’s iZone enrichment programming, students at Frazer K-8 School and H.W. Smith K-8 School receive 60 minutes a day of instruction from Baltimore Woods Nature Center, allowing for student exposure to hands-on activities in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.
