What is Nature Mentor bus funding
A Nature Mentor is a teacher or administrator who leads the path to future Nature Net field trips. If a new teacher joins the profession, is new to the Nature Net area, your school, or your grade level team, they may not be familiar with Nature Net sites and all that they offer.
You are a Nature Mentor if you invite this new teacher on your field trip experience and help them learn the value of your trip – and just how easy it is to get outdoors and learn! Nature Mentors must visit a Nature Net site, bring a new teacher along, and submit a written statement of how new teachers will benefit from the experience.
Our hope is to foster in new teachers a tradition of visiting Nature Net sites and an understanding of how field experiences can easily tie into existing curricula and school-year calendars.
