Spring 2016 Education Program

Posted on by NOSC

Our education program, led by Interim Education Program Manager Chrissy McLean, has been in full swing this spring. We have been implementing our Real Learning, Real Work Middle School Curriculum with students from Port Townsend, Clallam Bay, Joyce, and Neah Bay schools. We’ve also been continuing partnerships with Al Gonzalez’s 6th grade science class at Chimacum Middle School, and with Jefferson Land Trust working with students from Blue Heron Middle School in Port Townsend.

Implementation of our education programs requires funding by private donations, and they are entirely FREE to students and families who participate. See below for a list of upcoming education events, and updates on the great things local students are learning about our environment!
