Encounters with nature are a crucial part of child development. To promote environmental literacy, schools often take children on field trips. Some local districts have a student population of 25 percent ELLs; it is essential that these students have the resources they need to learn. To promote engagement for ELL students, the presenter completed vocabulary cards with Spanish translations and definitions. To further the connection between children and nature, they taught as a field trip instructor at NMNP.
