Youth Education Program

Youth Education

Our Watershed Education Program connects students with locally relevant watershed science lessons both in the classroom and out in the field. Students develop an understanding of how the watershed functions, human impacts, and how to keep habitats healthy. We work with entire classes of elementary school students as well as high school science classes to integrate standards-based STEM activities into their science curriculum. Students apply their classroom knowledge during site tours, field lessons, and service learning projects. We coordinate with agency partners to provide opportunities for students to build a sense of stewardship for the public lands in their communities. Our education program is made possible by the generous donations of the Upper Willamette Soil and Water Conservation District. Explore below for more information and links to the curriculum.
