Ebenezer's Explorers 2020 Summer Activity Guide

Environmental Education Launches Summer Program

The University’s Environmental Education program is working to keep kids connected to nature this summer by offering simple and fun activities children can complete at home.

Although social distancing guidelines will prevent the Environmental Education program from holding in-person camps this summer, the program has partnered with the UM Office of Partnerships and Outreach to create a free activity guide filled with educational crafts and interesting nature-themed information.

The activity book is free for any participant who registers on the Environmental Education webpage at After registration, participants will receive their activity guide in the mail. The program is also selling optional supply kits to explore the outdoors and complete activities in the activity guide for $35 each.
