Into The Woods (ITW) provides environmental education professional development opportunities for elementary teachers.  Teachers are trained in GLOBE protocols and  and learn how to implement service learning and citizen science projects with their students.  The project is a collaboration between the Queens College-Globe NY Metro progam and the NYU Wallerstein Collaborative. For more information about Into the Woods, visit the Into The Woods website.

Service learning projects include developing school gardens, propagating common milkweed, raising monarch butterflies, coastal cleanups and more. For examples of service learning projects visit our Service Learning page.
