Natural Partners

Mary Baldwin University has formal and informal partnerships with a variety of organizations that promote outdoor learning. In addition, we support on-line sharing of ideas and information from schools and other institutions. The links below represent some of the best connections we have made for advancing the concepts of Environment-Based Learning. Working together … we can make a difference!
