Foxberry’s aim is to foster a closer connection to nature. We want to impart that nature does not necessarily mean wilderness. Nature can be found in your backyard, local park, or school garden. Foxberry’s programming is designed to highlight natural environments within the city, where kids live, play and learn. We strive to forge connections between kids, the urban environment, and the natural world.
Foxberry Education is run by Nicole Parish-Andrews, an Environmental Educator devoted to creative engaging, culturally relevant environmental science lessons for Kindergarten through 12th grade. Nicole has a Master’s Degree in Urban Environmental Education and specializes in hands-on, placed based activities. Foxberry Education provides consultation on developing urban environmental educational programs as well as classroom visits to enhance science units learned in school.
