Environmental Education

Langwood offers a variety of environmental education opportunities in an outdoor classroom setting, through field trips, day camps, and public programs.

The pond provides a classroom for learning to fish and canoe, as well as for studying turtles, snakes, and frogs. Extensive hiking trails are perfect for learning about trees, wildflowers, fungi, and animal tracks. The bird-viewing blind offers up-close bird identification and observation. 

The Langwood Challenge Course teaches team building skills, leadership development, trust, and cooperation.
