Over the last decade, The TurfMutt Foundation joined forces with several education partners including Weekly Reader, Discovery Education and Scholastic to reach more than 70 million kids, teachers and families. The educational resources are free, aligned to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) standards for grades K-5.


TurfMutt teaches students and teachers how to “save the planet, one yard at a time.” The TurfMutt Foundation supports educational opportunities aligned with STEM for K-8 educators and students through the U.S. Green Building Council‎ Learning Lab.


TurfMutt is an official USGBC® Education Partner and part of their global LEARNING LAB.

The program also has been an education resource at the U.S. Department of Education’s Green Ribbon Schools, the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Green Apple, the Center for Green Schools, the Outdoors Alliance for Kids, the National Energy Education Development (NEED) project, Climate Change Live, Petfinder and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
