Welcome to the Environmental Education web site! This site is designed for
all educators in Thurston County who are seeking fun, memorable, hands-on
ways to teach children and college students about the environment. On this site you'll find a
wealth of programs offered by Thurston County, its cities, and various
organizations and agencies who are concerned about our local environment.
We recognize the importance of the Washington State Essential Academic Learning Requirements (EALRs) as you plan your classroom activities. Most of the field trips and presentations on this site can be tailored to meet EALRs, including those related to science, social studies, and health and fitness. When you call or e-mail to schedule an activity, please let us know which EALRs you would like to focus on, and we'll do our best to accommodate you and your students' needs.
We look forward to helping students discover our amazing environment, every step of the way.
