Day Programs in Seattle, Woodinville, and in Renton

We partner with teachers to connect classroom learning to real-world environmental examples in students’ own communities. We offer water-themed day-long programs at King County’s Brightwater Wastewater Treatment Plant in Woodinville and at their South Treatment Plant in Renton.

Our Schoolyard Programs offer science and engineering lessons in schoolyards throughout King and Snohomish Counties, and field studies of neighborhood creeks, streams, and stormwater infrastructure in Seattle.

Programs at Brightwater

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. Wheels to Water can provide buses or reimburse your school for costs to provide your own bus. To qualify, your school must be at a minimum 35% free and reduced lunch rate as per OSPI.

“This was a truly wonderful science experience for my students revealing both natural habitats within an urban setting as well as our responsibility to ensure they remain. My students saw their own potential impact upon their world and better recognize how humanity and nature intersect.”
