Service Learning

Teachers – Interested in giving your students real world experiences with problem solving and giving back to the community? The ELC can serve as a site for service learning projects. We will work with you to put together age-appropriate projects that meet science educational standards and benefit the ecology of our property. For example, we have worked with local kindergarten classrooms for several years to deliver programming on the importance of trees in our ecosystems. The program culminates in a field trip to the ELC in which kindergarten students plant willow trees along the river corridor with help from local high school students.

If you are interested in a service learning project, please contact us.

Please request your program at least three weeks prior to your preferred field trip date.
