Creation and facilitation of innovative environmental training and education programs
Environmental Training

Awareness. Knowledge. Understanding. Appreciation. Passion. Action.

Learning about the natural environment can provide the ultimate awareness of who we are and how we relate to the world around us. We live in a world where environmental issues are frequently complex and possible solutions can be garnered from a variety of disciplines, organizations and individuals. Studying and exploring our environment can help teach children and adults the importance of the issues at hand while also fostering a sense of respect and action.

Our educational services range from development and facilitation of adult training programs and workshops, to curriculum development, educational support, and custom designed education and outreach materials. Iris also drives change by providing public workshops through their GREEN WISE environmental education program.

Through GREEN WISE we look to inspire a lifelong love of learning, motivation, curiosity, enthusiasm, connectedness and responsibility toward our Earth and its resources.
