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.
We present a variety of student workshops. All presentations are interactive, hands-on and can be adapted to the needs of students. They support the Essential Academic Learning Requirements of Washington State.
To inquire about a classroom workshop, please phone the Eastside Audubon office at 425-576-8805.
