Custom Programs

sch_background
Our team of four environmental educators work to cultivate relationships between communities and the environment. We provide knowledge, tools and connections necessary for people to work, play and learn together.

Our Approach
We believe that nurturing curiosity, developing skills to answer questions, a strong sense of self and the ability to lead is critical to creating a vibrant, healthy and engaged community. We want to create lifelong, practical learning skills.

We also believe that the best techniques to make this happen are through integrated, hands-on activities and inquiry-based education.
Coronavirus Impacts
We are adapting to working remotely and are prepared to return to classes when the time comes.

Please let us know how we can support you.
Customized Lessons


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

Our programs support State Academic Learning Standards. We can come to your classrooms, do outdoor education, virtual lessons, teacher trainings and loan kits or materials.


Action Projects


Also known as Service Learning Projects, they are the most important component to the program because they give students the final piece that pulls together what they have learned.
 
Projects vary, but to be successful they must meet your needs. We will help you plan and can connect you with resources and community partners available to help. Past action projects include school gardens, recycled art exhibits and habitat restoration.
