Every person should have access to green space, clean air, water, and healthy soil. But that’s not always the case, especially in communities most impacted by racism and wealth inequality. When you create a schoolyard habitat, you give every student in your school a chance to see, smell, touch, and care for nature. The National Wildlife Federation is committed to supporting school communities in developing their schoolyard habitats. Whether you’re a teacher, administrator, parent, or community member, we hope this guide will help transform your schoolyard into a vibrant, living resource for learning, health, and community resilience.
