Indiana Association for Education of Young Children Rachel Carson Award

The Indiana Association for Education of Young Children is a statewide, nonprofit organization with 16 chapters and over two thousand members. Through their ongoing research, the Indiana Association for Education of Young Children has found that nature provides multiple learning and development benefits for the children for which they serve. Because of this, the association supports and promotes access to quality education, not only in the classroom, but also through nature.
