The goal of the BTNEP Education Program is to educate teachers and students of grades K-12 about the wetlands and related habitats of the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary.
Our education curriculum facilitates instruction by providing hands-on, inquiry-based lessons focused primarily on science, and art content. The lessons also provide easy access to materials necessary to teach students, as well as inform them about environmental issues that have a direct effect on the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary.
BTNEP presents at many seminars, workshops, camps and schools to educate on the importance of our wetlands and culture. BTNEP works with local, state, and federal partners on a variety of programs to enhance K-12 education by funding workshops throughout the year including From H2O: A Water Quality Workshop for Teachers, Terrebonne Aquatic Clinic, Wetland Camps at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park, LA Environmental Education Symposium, WETSHOP, and the Eagle Expo Student Educational Program. BTNEP strives to educate people of all ages.
