The Nature of Learning

Education is the pathway to a more sustainable planet.  The Education Program at BRIT links global issues to local experience by educating the public about the importance of biodiversity and sustaining the environment.

At BRIT, we have the special privilege of helping children and adults discover the wonder of our natural heritage.  No matter your age or level of interest, BRIT has a program for you.
