Our approach to Environmental Science Education at IslandWood

ABOUT US

IslandWood is an environmental education nonprofit serving the Puget Sound region. We believe every child should have access to the sense of wonder and discovery that comes from meaningful experiences in the natural world. IslandWood was founded to increase access and lower financial barriers to nature-based learning for our region’s children. Over the last 20 years, we’ve expanded the ways and places that we work, delivering programs for people of all ages that can inspire a lifetime of passion for the natural world and the planet.

SUPPORT OUTDOOR LEARNING

We remain as committed as ever to serving students and schools with the highest financial need through scholarship funding. Without those scholarships, many children in the region would miss out on outdoor learning experiences. Donor support is essential to continuing to serve the 50 school districts and 25,000 students a year that have come to depend on IslandWood.

It is central to our work in environmental education, and of inspiring healthy communities and a healthy planet.
