Wetland Round-Up Field Trip Program in Alviso

Habitat Exploration

Environmental Education Center in Alviso

The Environmental Education Center (EEC) is located at 1751 Grand Blvd, Alviso.  It is surrounded by uplands, salt marshes, salt ponds, and freshwater tidal slough. The building which was designed for education, contains two classrooms, an auditorium and an enclosed observation tower. An open pavilion, trails, and a boardwalk through the salt marsh habitat make it easy to see and explore natural wonders of the South Bay. The building and portions of the trails are accessible to all people of varying abilities. Office hours at the EEC are Tuesday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.   

Wetland Round-up Field Trip

The field trip lottery for the Environmental Education Center in Alviso will not be offered for spring 2016.

Due to a staffing shortage and the need to revise our programs to support the Next Generation Science Standards we have decided not to offer the field trip lottery at our Alviso location this spring.

Staff has been reviewing and revising activities to support the Next Generation Science Standards. The new activities will be designed for K-2nd grade and 3rd – 4th grade.

We will be posting updates and materials for you to review on the website in January 2016. We value your participation in the Wetland Round-Up Field Trip Program. We are excited about sharing our new activities and we want your feedback.

We look forward to seeing you next year!
