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 (North San Jose). It is surrounded by uplands, salt marshes, salt ponds, and a 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.

Taste pickleweed in the salt marsh, and explore the wetland habitats on a Wetland Round-up Field Trip.

    Classroom teachers new to the program are required to attend a FIELD TRIP WORKSHOP before participating in a field trip. 

    This year we are requiring that returning schools send ONE teacher representative to a workshop to learn the new field trip format.   

    It is strongly recommended that parent leaders and chaperones attend a FIELD TRIP WORKSHOP to learn how to lead the hands – on activities.

    Thursday, October 17, 4pm - 6pm
