Day Programs at the Brightwater Education Center

King County has partnered with IslandWood to bring our four-hour programs to the Brightwater Education Center in Woodinville. Our goal is to bring classroom learning to life, engaging students in experiential and project-based fieldwork that appeals to diverse learning styles. Programs are provided at no cost to schools and free transportation is available for those with 35% or greater FRL.


We ask all schools to provide their own transportation to and from our programs. However, we have limited funding to provide free transportation through King County’s Wheels to Water Program. To qualify, your school must be at a minimum 35% free and reduced lunch rate as per OSPI.


Registration for 2024-25 onsite field trip programs is now open!  As part of our commitment to increasing equitable access to our programs for historically underserved schools, registration will open on a tiered system based on the low-income/free-and-reduced lunch percentage of your school.
