Specialized 2nd grade Insect Adventure and 5th grade Wild Florida Adventure curriculum programs were developed in coordination with Collier County teachers to include classroom lessons, field exploration, and Educator workshops. Both are aligned to the Florida Sunshine State Standards. Individuals, foundations and businesses support tuition costs through sponsorship.
Our innovative Partner Educator Program provides orientations, workshops and continued support to enable elementary teachers and university faculty and student naturalists to serve as field educators for visiting classes. Partner Educators receive membership benefits and recognition in our annual report.
Over 150 Partner Educators are currently trained and delivering programs in coordination with Corkscrew naturalists.
