Nature in the City
Baltimore Woods Nature in the City brings authentic natural science learning to K-6 grade urban schoolchildren. Supported by the Syracuse City School District and corporate sponsors, tied to the Syracuse City School District curriculum and New York State Science Standards, lesson content supports teachers while directly impacting students. Holding programs in parks and neighborhood green spaces as well as the classroom, students' earliest learning experiences in the sciences are relevant, meaningful and fun. Nature in the City is an efficient program. Through walking field trips, student learning is 
neighborhood-based. Carbon footprint is reduced, while transportation costs, and valuable instruction time are conserved. Most importantly, student science learning is enhanced, as evidenced though standardized and pre/post learning tests.
Now in its eleventh year, the award winning Nature in the City program encourages support and involvement from the sponsor community.

Our goal is to give people of all ages opportunities to enjoy and learn about nature first-hand.
