My favorite place at Mount Union is the Huston-Brumbaugh Nature Center. Many students do not realize that Mount has its own nature preserve, but it does!

Workshops and Development Resources

The Nature Center offers workshops to train youth group facilitators, teachers and pre-service teachers to use various environmental education resources.

The Nature Center staff members are certified to teach the following nationally recognized EE curriculums: Project WILD, Project Learning Tree, Project WET, Healthy Water - Healthy People, Food Land and People, and Growing Up Wild.

Through a new partnership with the Council for Environmental Education (the national office for Flying WILD and Project WILD) The J.T. Huston - Dr. J.D. Brumbaugh Nature Center is now offering Flying WILD training and materials in the Northeast Ohio area. Flying WILD is an exciting new environmental education program that introduces middle school students to bird conservation through school bird festivals, hands-on classroom activities, and community service projects.

Our facility is also used for teacher trainings in other recognized EE programs such as the GLOBE Project and the Leopold Education Project.

The Nature Center provides trainings on other topics for schools/teachers with a particular focus. To schedule a training or to check when the next workshop will be held contact the Nature Center at (330) 823-7487.
