Programs are designed with your group of teachers in three main areas of environmental education:
Composting/Worms/Garden Ecosystems, life cycles, identifying organisms, composting technology
Resource Conservation/Recycling Resources and recyclables, Pierce County's solid waste system, landfill technology and design, waste analysis, ecological footprints
Water Consumption and conservation, healthy habitat, impacts of pollution, water systems, energy sources
