Eastern Kentucky University and the Floracliff State Nature Preserve are collaborating to host a “BioBlitz” and Public Nature Days June 20-21.
The Division of Natural Areas at Eastern Kentucky University has learned that it will receive the 2014 Outstanding Organization Award presented by the Kentucky Association for Environmental Education.
Representatives of the Division will be on hand to receive the honor at the Association’s fall conference on Sept. 13 in Lexington.
A weaving that began to take shape at Family Nature Day a couple of years ago is now a permanent fixture at Eastern Kentucky University’s Maywoods Environmental and Educational Laboratory.
From a high school language arts teacher who wants to immerse her classes in a “Walden experience” to wide-eyed elementary schoolchildren on nature-packed field trips to college students performing research, Eastern Kentucky University’s Maywoods Environmental and Educational Laboratory is growing in popularity.
