About The Teacher

Suzanne Belflower passionately believes that children need to be

outdoors and experience nature first hand in order to learn about and

appreciate our natural world, and by doing so will grow up to become

good stewards of our Earth and the natural resources that we all

depend on. A K-12 science educator for many years, Suzanne knows

that Mother Nature is a great teacher and when children are given the

opportunity to learn outdoors, they will become excited and curious

about the world around them.

Suzanne led efforts to create several Outdoor classrooms while

teaching in Georgia. These areas were developed on school property

and gave her classes an opportunity to be involved in planting gardens,

creating small ponds, planting trees and teaching others. She organized

and led an afterschool group called the Student Environmental Action

Team (SEAT) which taught students how to make decisions that would

make a positive difference in their school and community. Suzanne

worked with various natural resources agencies to plan annual Earth

Day events at her school. Working with River-keepers, she organized

river clean-ups which involved students and community volunteers.

She planned and led a variety of nature camps, and developed an

environmental science curriculum for grades 6- 12.

Suzanne now lives on a farm with her husband where she enjoys taking

her 2 ½ year old grandson Henry for walks in the woods, wading in

puddles and just recently they observed wood ducks swimming in their

pond. She is excited to help Henry and other young children she meets

grow up loving nature and choosing to be outdoors whenever possible!
