• IslandWood’s teacher professional development series is featured as part of “the most ambitious statewide climate science education initiative in the U.S.” in the University of Washington College of Education’s article about the Washington state ClimeTime initiative. Funded by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), the ClimeTime initiative provides the funding necessary for IslandWood’s professional development series to reach more than 200 teachers and 4,000 students each year. Our workshops and school-based supports help teachers engage their students in climate science that connects the Next Generation Science Standards to real-world stormwater issues.

IslandWood acknowledges that we live and work on the ancestral land of the Coast Salish people, who have been stewards of this region's land and waters since time immemorial, and who continue to protect these lands and waters for future generations, as promised by the Point Elliott Treaty of 1855, the Treaty of Point No Point of 1855, and the Treaty of Medicine Creek of 1854.
While the majority of our work takes place on Suquamish (suq̀ʷabš) and Duwamish (dxʷdɐwʔabʃ) land, we also conduct programs on the land of the Snohomish (sduhúbʃ), Puyallup (spuyaləpabš), Muckleshoot (buklshuhls), Skokomish (sqoqc’bes), and S’Klallam (nəxʷsƛ̕ay̕əm) peoples.
