It was an influential teacher who turned a young Roger Tory Peterson away from mischief and toward a new future. And later in his career, he often reminisced: ”my contribution has been foremost as a teacher.”

For more than 85 years, Peterson’s work has inspired those who influence children—parents, teachers, and naturalists— to instill a love of nature in generations to come. The essence of RTPI’s education programs is to inspire people through art and nature. Join us and together we will explore nature the way Roger Tory Peterson did.
