Nature is the fantastic factory that makes the building blocks of all our lives—food, drinking water, the stuff we own, and the air we breathe. That’s why The Nature Conservancy and its 550 scientists have created Nature Lab: to help students learn the science behind how nature works for us and how we can help keep it running strong.
Nature Lab is The Nature Conservancy's youth curriculum hub.
Nature Lab gives teachers, students and families everything they need to start exploring and understanding nature around the globe alongside Conservancy scientists. Our interactive lesson plans align to standards and can be customized for each classroom.
