Our education partners provide a wide variety of environmental education programs for K-12 students in many locations across Central Oregon. All programs are aligned with education standards and provide meaningful ways for students to learn science concepts, using the natural world as their classroom. In addition to science concepts, programs also incorporate Common Core State Standards, and many include time for art and reflection activities, along with physical activity.
In order to provide a sequence of educational field experiences that build upon each other for students, we highly encourage that teachers collaborate with other grade levels at their school.
