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 Washington State's Essential Academic Learning Requirements.  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

Workshop descriptions

Bird Discovery Box for K–12 Teachers

Teachers may borrow the Bird Discovery Box, which contains lesson plans and the materials needed to teach them.

Family Birding Walks

At various times throughout the year, we take families with children five years or older on leisurely walks, stopping to explore any natural object that captures the fancy of our participants — young and old. Check out Eastside Audubon's home page for details.

Family activities schedule

Brian Gershon College Scholarship for High School Seniors

For high school seniors who have demonstrated a keen interest in the environment/nature. The application is available in both Word and PDF formats.

Amy McQuade Camp Scholarship

Eastside Audubon offers four scholarships to the Ground to Sound STEM Challenge Camp.

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 Marie Hartford:

The camp is sponsored by Friends of the Hidden River and the Russell Family Foundation to inspire campers to become "stewards of the Sound through positive action for our local community."

Len Steiner Grant Fund for K-12 Teachers

The Youth Education Committee annually awards grants to teachers from schools with significant low-income populations. Funds are for the purchase of non-consumable materials for a unit geared toward science or the environment. Funds are awarded at the discretion of the committee. There is no application.
