An environmental education (EE) committee of Refuge staff, the Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership, Educational Service District 112, Columbia Gorge Refuge Stewards, and local retired teacher volunteers has developed an educational program geared toward fifth grade science curriculum. To supplement visits to the Refuge for environmental education, an Educator's Guide to the program is available at the end of this website. Additionally, the Refuge offers an Educators’ Workshop to acquaint teachers and volunteers with the Refuge's education program, activities, and facilities. Those attending the Educators’ Workshop will also receive great tips for planning a successful field trip to the Refuge.
Educator Training Opportunities
The EE committee is pleased to be able to offer educational opportunities to teachers and volunteers. Learn from our excited and knowledgeable trainers information that can be shared with your students while on their field trip to connect them with the outdoors in an educational atmosphere. The next educator's workshop is August 21st. For more detail, view the Teacher's Workshop Flyer.
Teachers who attend this workshop are eligible for assistance from volunteers who have also attended the workshop. They also are available for receiving educational clock hours.
