Environmental Education


Working with schools and communities to establish, maintain and enhance long-term education programs that prepare youth to use critical and creative thinking to make wise decisions about forests in Washington State and to remain open to future information that may change their opinion.

Project Learning Tree uses the forest as a "window on the world" to increase students' understandings of our complex environment. 

Washington's history is woven into its land.  Forests of Washington (FOW)  activities explore the rich cultural, ecological and social history of our state's bountiful forests.  
The  Environmental Study Site (ESS) program  improves student learning through use of an outdoor area on or near the school grounds,  engaging students in community based authentic learning. 

Use Environment As An Integrating Context

Secondary Integrated Teams (SIT) support teams of teachers during planning and implementation of Model integrated units, providing a meaningful context to the content and process taught in the subject areas.

A number of people from a variety of backgrounds come together to make WFPA's Environmental Education program successful.  Workshops are regularly offered to educators.  View the current list of workshops or register.
