About EOL Education

The Learning + Education Group works with partner organizations to create and foster the development of educational tools and resources that encourage collaboration, participation, and in-depth exploration about biodiversity by learners around the world.

Through creative partnerships with educators and institutions that support science literacy, and in collaboration with enthusiasts and amateur naturalists, we're bringing the powerful macroscope of the Encyclopedia of Life from the classroom to the great outdoors, from the desktop to the pocket, from the youngest student to lifelong learners.

If you are interested in collaborating or have ideas for how we can improve our programs, please contact us.

iNaturalist Field Guides

EOL has partnered with the species observation site iNaturalist to develop a new version of the field guide tool that more closely links to species observations.

The new field guide application has all the features of the original EOL Field Guide tool but also allows you to package a version for mobile devices. To learn more about these guides, please visit iNaturalist.org/guides.
