For teachers

The Lahemaa National Park Center offers a variety of opportunities for promoting and facilitating environmental education. The local nature and well-developed infrastructure provide a diverse range of educational programs both indoors and outside.

Environmental education specialists have developed a number of study programs for local hiking trails and the Nature Center. In addition, there are study programs that are held in other protected areas in the Lääne-Viru County. Various study programs can be ordered directly for the school. Study programs are designed for different ages.

All study programs offered by the Environmental Board are free of charge.
