Beechwood Farms Nature Reserve
Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania
At The Discovery School at Beechwood, we believe that providing young children the opportunity to freely explore and play outside fosters a lifelong appreciation for our natural world. As a result, The Discovery School has partnered with Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania in a collaborative effort to provide discovery-based early childhood learning in a natural setting - Beechwood Farms Nature Reserve. The Discovery school provides the educators and runs the day-to-day operations of the school. Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania provides the classroom space, access to experts and materials, as well as the 134 acres of natural surroundings of Beechwood Farms Nature Reserve.
The Discovery School is lucky to call Beechwood Farms Nature Reserve "home". Our children and educators have access to over five miles of trails, a variety of outdoor learning spaces, as well as the DiscoverGround Nature Play Area! This truly idyllic setting provides boundless opportunities for play and exploration.
"If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, let us allow them to love the earth before we ask them to save it."
