At a time when environmental issues are front and center in our society, environmental education has acquired new importance not just for the betterment of future generations but for the survival of our planet. This is why PEEC’s mission is to make education a natural process that takes place more out in nature than in classrooms. Combining both the latest cutting-edge technology in education equipment and frequent field trips and outdoor adventures, the Pocono Environmental Education Center aims to advance environmental education and instill a deep-rooted appreciation of nature. This non-profit organization with long experience in education is also a partner of the National Park Service.
Not many students would agree with that, but at the Pocono Environmental Education Center, education is a hands-on experience where students are immersed in the educational process, making learning both fun and easy. On the sprawling 77-acre area, field trips reinforce the stem curriculum while stressing team building and at the same time creating an environment where the students are unplugged. The goal is to encourage students to develop their innate abilities to build the future leaders of the country. Adventures are also at the heart of the organization’s methodology. Students get to explore beaver lodges and crawl into bat caves. Learning about the environment starts and ends in nature.
As part of PEEC’s service to the community and raising awareness of the importance of the environment, the organization offers different programs for all the family, from family nature getaways for the weekend that cover everything including lodging, activities, and meals to public nature programs offering guided hikes, and amphibian searches among other exciting activities. And if you can’t make it to the organization, their trained staff can travel to you as part of their outreach programs. Call them at 570-828-2319 or visit at 538 Emery Road,
