Rincon Institute
Working with teachers

The Rincon Institute helps support the efforts of teachers in the Tucson, Tanque Verde, and Vail School Districts who are interested in incorporating environmental education into their curriculum. 


Currently, the Rincon Institute is working with two teachers at Cienega High School to bring their students onto the land and bring the land into the lives of the students.  One class is helping to improve the butterfly and native plant gardens at Colossal Cave Mountain Park, while the other class will be helping to do ecological monitoring and inventory on one of the Rincon Institute's conservation easement properties.
