Youth Education Programs

At the Environmental Center, we believe that educating kids about sustainability is crucial to a healthy future for people and the planet. We empower future leaders to create a sustainable tomorrow with hands-on educational programs in local classrooms, and outside in gardens and on public lands. We help students understand the connection between humans and the environment, and to make decisions that reduce their impact.
