CFC's Educational Programs


Youth Education

Citizens for Conservation offers nature-based programs designed to educate children ages four and older in the greater Barrington area to discover their role in “saving living space for living things.” We offer children from pre-school through sixth grade, along with their parents, the opportunity to learn about the natural world at home with the Junior Naturalist Home Education Series.

Community Education

The purpose of CFC’s Community Education Committee is to inspire and equip local residents to lead environmentally friendly lives. We are a community resource helping homeowners to make simple changes in daily activities that will allow them to exist seamlessly in a healthy natural environment. We are especially involved in home landscaping. Community Education develops and delivers programs and materials that involve many aspects of connecting people with nature.

Junior Naturalist Program

Citizens for Conservation provides a fun and educational series of activity books called Junior Naturalist for youth from pre-school through sixth grade to teach them about the natural world. By explaining the diversity of life that resides in our ponds, our open spaces, and even our own back yards, the activity books provide children the opportunity to appreciate and respect nature.
