Ijams Brings Nature to You!
Can’t make it to Ijams Nature Center for a field trip? Ijams can come to you! Ijams’ naturalists and environmental educators can bring nature to your classroom or outdoor space.
Engaging curricula bring the natural world alive for students, and all programs complement many Tennessee State Education Standards. All outreach programs also include a visit with an Ijams animal ambassador.
