Do you need a speaker, have a group to take on a field trip, have a Scout class to lead in an activity, or just have a question about an environmental topic?  There is a rich assortment of individuals, organized groups and government entities that offer excellent resources, including speakers, tours and workshops on environmental and conservation topics.  Teachers (formal and non-formal) will want to take a look at the Community Resource Guide – a listing of nearly 50 educational field trip destinations!
