CEED’s virtual nature series!
If an in-person program does not work for you, CEED now offers our unique interactive nature presentations, workshops, and field trips virtually for schools, libraries and more! Maybe you live in upstate New York (could be anywhere in the US and beyond) and would like your students to visit the beach, we can do that for you virtually! We can also provide libraries with interactive nature programs and workshops, where registered individuals can enjoy participating from the comforts in their home.
Classrooms and other groups will meet in real time to identify phenomena found in our natural world. Our experienced educators have created lively online experiences where students enjoy, explore, and immerse themselves in nature. Their interactive approach keeps the children engaged, inquisitive, and often yearning for more.
- Teachers – bring energy to science and biology lessons
- Librarians – keep patrons connected to the library
- Parents – share with librarians and teachers to capture the interest of students, or join with other parents to add educational pizazz to your at-home schooling

In addition to a mix of live animal ambassadors, video clips, and photos, during the presentation we bring in a bucket of actual pond water to see what critters we can catch, live on camera!
