EAGLE Club runs from September to June as an afterschool program for 12 to15 youth ages 8 to 13. Each EAGLE Club meets one hour weekly for eight consecutive weeks in the fall and then again in the spring. Youth explore nature in their communities, take field trips to natural sites around Boston and participate in campouts and local stewardship and advocacy projects. Every EAGLE Club session attends a weekend Learn About program. EAGLE Club is a place-based, exploratory program focused on improving science learning, access to nature and awareness of environmental careers. EAGLE curricula are specially developed to meet Massachusetts state science standards, as well as the unique needs of our youth participants. EAGLE Club is co-led by Eagle Eye staff, university interns and guest educators.
