Environmental Education Team
ALT’S Environmental Education Team creates opportunities to connect all ages with the natural world to engage the next generation of environmental stewards.
We teach bold programs that foster an understanding of regional issues and solutions for current and future generations by: Creating new curriculum highlighting the importance of conservation as it relates to climate change, regional resiliency, and quality of life; Focusing on expanding STEM-based, hands-on curriculum to engage our youngest future scientists; Providing educators with the knowledge and skills to effectively teach environmental awareness through professional development programming.
The team is led by Senior Director of Education & Curriculum Julie Travaglini, who holds a Master’s Degree in Teaching, a Pennsylvania Teaching License and Specialty Discipline Instructor License, and is certified in more than a dozen national curricula. She loves teaching learners of all ages about the wondrous world around us, and has a passion for leading professional development workshops for educators to broaden her curriculum’s reach.
The Environmental Education Team also employs Environmental Educators who hold all required clearances and training to work with students in the classroom and outdoors. Our staff travel across the county and within the region to provide high-quality, standards-based programs that incorporate STEM concepts in hands-on conservation and natural history-themed lessons.
Our programs are offered for individuals ages 2 through adult on our conservation areas or at a site of your choosing.
