Students in the program study their local environment, plant gardens, learn about plant-pollinator relationships by observing them in the field, and participate in active restoration projects. Their lessons come from The Nature of This Place, a curriculum guide developed by Sierra Streams' staff members specifically for the foothills. Although many organizations offer occasional field trips, assemblies and service learning days for local students, we offer the only sustained, semester-long environmental science program in the area.
“ The program offered by Sierra Streams has been extremely well received by students and teachers alike, and is allowing us to meet a need for rigorous science instruction that will better prepare our students for high school and beyond.”
