Response to COVID-19 Outbreak

The health and safety of our students and their families is a top of concern of ours. In response to Governor Jay Inslee’s announcement that all Washington schools are closed through at least April 24, we have canceled our education events accordingly. We will work with our teacher partners to reschedule classroom lessons and field trips as we continue monitoring and following guidance from the CDC, Public Health – King County & Seattle, and other public officials regarding COVID-19.

Environmental education does more than bring science to life.

Outdoor learning experiences foster teamwork, nurture the imagination, increase students’ sense of ownership over their learning, and instill a conservation ethic. For more than two decades, we have been engaging 4th-12th grade students in King County with high-quality, science-based outdoor learning opportunities that are aligned with WA State learning standards, and are affordable and fun.

Our curriculums include five parts that build upon each other to create a meaningful learning experience:

  • Introductory lesson (taught by the classroom teacher): includes a pre-program student assessment in the Greenway science journal.
  • In-class lesson: prepares students for their upcoming field study trip.
  • Field study trip: reinforces concepts presented in the classroom by engaging students in hands-on science investigation as they explore a Pacific Northwest forest ecosystem.
  • Stewardship event: gives students an opportunity to take action. Depending on the season, students plant native trees and shrubs, remove invasive plants, or work in our native plant nursery.
  • Reflective lesson: helps students make connections between the field study trip and protecting forests near their community.
