Education & Programs

The Environmental Interpretive Center, as part of the University of Michigan-Dearborn, has been providing experiential environmental education for more than 40 years. The EIC provides rare opportunities for students and community members of all ages to explore and learn about nature first hand. Nothing compares to having an outdoor classroom, that is why the EIC provides many interesting and educational outdoor programs that cover a wide range of environmental topics. The best part about the programs offered here at the Environmental Interpretive Center is that they are free of charge, or very affordable, and there are many different programs throughout the year that can fit into anyone's schedule.
