Teaching and Learning For the Future
History and Culture
The area known as the Mountains to Sound Greenway boasts a storied history. From an Indian trail across Snoqualmie Pass, to westward settlement of the country, to logging, mining, airplanes and software, local industries have shaped this landscape and its people. Read more about History and Culture in the Greenway.
The Mountains to Sound Greenway provides a magnificent outdoor classroom that is shared by many great schools and programs. We suggest a visit the Cedar River Watershed Education Center or the Mercer Slough Environmental Education Center for guided tours, interpretive trails, and wild places to explore. Or explore the map of outdoor education opportunities in the Greenway.
The Greenway Education Program does its part to get kids out in the Greenway, spending time in schools and in the woods teaching and learning about preserving a balance between people and nature.
Eight Mountains to Sound Greenway kiosks dot the landscape, from Cle Elem to Mercer Island. Take a look!
