We partner with teachers to connect classroom curriculum to watersheds and other built and natural systems in or near where students live. Our day programs are designed to support schools and teachers, reinforce student learning that happens in both formal and informal settings, broaden the idea of “environment” to include urban systems, and emphasize human impacts on ecosystems.
We strive to be learner-centered, culturally responsive, and adaptable to participants and the needs of their community.
We offer day programs at King County’s Brightwater Treatment Plant in Woodinville and South Plant in Renton, on the Duwamish River, and in parks in Seattle.
