Environmental education and outreach are a large priority at Big Sand Mound, and the unique sand prairie habitat has turned itself into an outdoor classroom in many ways! Big Sand Mound Preserve works closely with Muscatine and Louisa County schools, as well as conservation boards, offering programs that enrich classroom learning with outdoor experiences. These programs help educate students and the public about the importance of nature and our place in it.
