LEEP Into School
Lutherlyn's renowned Environmental Education Program comes to your school!
The LEEP staff has developed in-school activity modules for children in pre-school through second grade. All of the modules include hands-on experiences with real (but not live) animal specimens from Lutherlyn's Eberly Environmental Education Center, games, stories, and the knowledge of the LEEP staff members. The activities are based on state standards for primary and early childhood education.
In addition, the LEEP Staff can work with teachers to bring many of the activities in the Program Options Guide into the classroom or onto the school grounds for grades 3 through 5. Teachers simply need to discuss what indoor and outdoor resources are available for use when registering for a program and the LEEP Staff will design a unique experience for their classes.
The LEEP staff offer these traveling programs for the months of November through March. Please contact the LEEP staff for more information.

The LEEP Animals: For twenty years, LEEP has used professionally preserved wild animals to give students a hands-on experience with wildlife. These animals were not killed to become teaching tools. Most were hit by cars or died for natural causes. Taxidermists have professionally mounted these animals to be used for education. Why not live animals? Mounted animals can be handled and touched safely by children, they don't bite, and they don't make a mess!
