From edible gardening to rain barrels and rain gardens, green schoolyard projects are an impactful way to teach your students about the local environment while enriching their hands-on science experiences!

  • Tour the Mukilteo Elementary Outdoor classroom to see firsthand how one school transformed their schoolyard into a sustainable outdoor learning laboratory.
  • Learn about local funding opportunities to jumpstart your next schoolyard project.
  • Hear presentations and meet other teachers who’ve implemented projects at their schools, including lessons learned along the way.
  • Hear presentations from Farmer Frog, Snohomish Conservation District, and Everett School District Head of Maintenance to learn the steps, challenges, and tips to getting a project installed at your school.
  • Network with other educators who share a passion for outdoor education and sustainability.
