Education helps develop a community that understands connections among the human health, ecosystems and economies. The Hitchcock Center connects people with nature and encourages a deeper emotional bond with the natural world that sustains us all.
Founded in 1962, the Hitchcock Center for the Environment fosters awareness and understanding of our environment through programs with a particular focus on children, who live in a world of environmental challenges.
Our educational framework centers on five fundamentals:
- Understanding principles of ecology
- Valuing place
- Promoting resilience
- Demonstrating sustainability in the built environment
- Educating for active citizenship
