For Educators

The Friends of Auburn Ravine places great value in educating adults and youth alike. For this reason, we have established an area devoted to instructional information and programs pertaining to the Auburn Ravine, its ecology, purpose, flora, fauna and the conservation of each. In addition, we are introducing a program that reaches out to our local K-12 educators who are filling out their lesson plans and would appreciate an off-site resource for their classroom use.
