The Nature Program at Germantown Academy is designed to help the community know and appreciate the environment, to understand why it should be protected and to encourage teachers to explore the campus' abundant natural resources with their students. In addition to curricular support, program offerings include, the Green Ambassadors club in each division that supports green initiatives throughout the school and community days where students, families, and faculty come together to help maintain our outdoor spaces. The Nature Program Blog was created to share the wealth and breath of outdoor programming in the Green Roof and Apiary, The Preserve, The Academic Courtyard, The Woods, The Wissahickon Creek, and The Gardens.
