Four Winds is most interested in making it easier and more rewarding for teachers and Four Winds volunteers to take children outdoors to learn about the natural world. Some great projects are those that enhance the schoolyard habitat by adding native plants and trees to attract birds, butterflies, or pollinators; building nature trails; or providing access to water (ponds or streams). Student involvement and community participation strengthen the proposal.
