I recently heard about this great new resource available to Raleigh homeschoolers.
Environmental Literacy Center

The ELC is available for use upon appointment. It can be used as a meeting center and/or a resource center for anyone in the field of education.

Subject areas include environmental science, popular natural science, conservation, sustainability, museum and non-formal education practices and science education.
Facilities Description: The room has 4 computers connected to the internet and conference table has ports for power and internet if laptops are preferred. LCD projectors can be provided upon request. The ELC can hold groups of up to 25.
