ABOUT NATURE

For more than a quarter-century, Nature has brought the beauty and wonder of the natural world into American homes, in the process becoming the benchmark of natural history programs on American television. Recognizing Nature's vast potential as a learning resource, PBS offers educational materials free of charge to every elementary and middle school teacher in America. These include a Teacher’s Guide, classroom poster, DVD of select Nature episodes, and take-home activities. A Nature comic book for children ages 10 to 12, also free, is distributed through retail outlets, education centers, and museums nationwide, including the American Museum of Natural History.
