Green Guide

In an effort to conserve and promote the environmental features found in this area WEI hosts year-round educational programming for participants of all ages. Taught by graduates of WEI’s Green Guide Certificate Program, topics can vary from butterflies to ecosystems to oysters. Learning takes place both on our 158-acre campus and during field trips which immerse students in course topics. See the full program list below for dates, times, fees and age range vary.

We suggest all participants dress appropriately for activity and weather, wear closed toe shoes and bring water, snacks, sunscreen and bug spray. All participants will need to sign a liability waiver before beginning programming and need to be 18 years of age or older. See a list of our upcoming programs below.
