NOTCHCLIFF NATURE PROGRAMS
Now in its fourth year, Notchcliff Nature Programs offer immersive, intergenerational outdoor learning for children and their families in the greater Baltimore region. Notchcliff features an outdoor forest preschool, forest school cooperative, licensed summer nature camps, and parent/caregiver classes as well as programming for elders in the community. ERAFANS is the 501(c)3 umbrella organization for Notchcliff Nature Programs, which is a community-based initiative at Glen Meadows Retirement Community in Glen Arm, Maryland.
The Forest Days outdoor learning program is a collaboration between ERAFANS facilitators and the learning community at participating schools. We strive to increase equitable access to nature-based and environmental education in Title 1 public schools through weekly Forest Days programming, now taking place in Philadelphia, PA and Falls Church, VA.
