• Environmental Program

    Earhart students study the environment in greater detail than students at most other schools.  We have an Environmental Education Teacher on staff who works with students in a lab setting and supports the teachers in teaching environmental studies in the classroom.

     

    Environmental Education at Earhart also makes extensive use of the Earhart grounds.

     

    Earhart is proud of its 11 acres available for environmental study.  Our grounds feature some of the following highlights:

    • a large pond
    • A wooded area with a nature trail
    • Native Prairie
    • A butterfly garden which is an identified Monarch Waystation
    • Adjacent to Hellars Grove, a natural prairie, with access to the Arkansas River.  
    • O.W.L.S (Outdoor Wildlife Learning Site) grant recipient
    • W.H.I.P (Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program) grant recipient

     

    Our beautiful grounds give students an opportunity to use the outdoors as a classroom.

     

    Currently, we use the following guide to present the units over a two-year period:
