Education + Tours

How do we teach our children to conserve and preserve?

Simple answer—start early and lead by example! Live Thrive is working to bring environmental education to all levels through the CHaRM facility.

Live Thrive offers a variety of educational opportunities for the general public, schools, civic and corporate groups.
From on-site tour experiences and field trips to off-site Lunch and Learns and career days,  Live Thrive provides customized experiences for all groups. If your group is larger than 25 people, email education@livethrive.org to ensure we have enough staff coverage for your visit.
