Youth Education

Volunteers from the Eastside Audubon Youth Education Committee work with children of all ages in a variety of settings: schools, nature centers, parks, camps, festivals, and fairs.

Classroom Workshops

The Youth Education Committee offers a variety of student workshops. All presentations are interactive, hands-on and can be adapted to the needs of students. They support the Washington State Core Competencies.  To inquire about a classroom workshop or to borrow the Bird Discovery Box, please phone the Eastside Audubon office at 425-576-8805, or email youthprograms@eastsideaudubon.org.

Amy McQuade Camp Scholarship

Eastside Audubon offers four Scholarships to the Ground to Sound STEM Challenge Camp, which is held for one week in July for students entering 5th, 6th, and 7th grades the next fall.  The day camp is located at the Brightwater Environmental Center near Woodinville WA. 

Campers conduct field studies to learn how saving Puget Sound starts in the woods, waters, and trails surrounding the Center while working with their teams to learn about the natural environment.  Contact: Registrar: Marie Hartford: mhartford@lwsd.org.
