A central element of Merry Lea’s mission is:IMGP0023

Providing environmental education for people of all ages.

We have designed programs for school aged children (kindergarten through high school). Here, you will find resources for teachers including forms to register for our ongoing popular programs.

At Merry Lea, the education team is determined to facilitate experiences in the outdoor world which inspire exploration, foster a sense of wonder, and share joy with children of all ages. We will provide information about ecosystems and natural processes of northeastern Indiana, provoke interest in life-long investigation, and encourage stewardship, a sense of place, and hope.
