Field Trip Program Overview:

FREE field trips are available to Sound Education alumni. We'll provide hands-on environmental education activities and our enthusiastic education staff - you provide the students! 

Snohomish Conservation District (SCD) is pleased to offer ten transportation grants for the 2016-2017 school year. To apply for funding, simply fill out the application included in our field trip request form. If selected for one of the grants, we'll reimburse you for up to $300 of the transportation costs associated with your trip. Funding will be prioritized for schools with free and reduced lunch rates of at least 75%.


Our Field Trips:

Story of the Stream @ Lively Environmental Center 

Explore the woods and become water quality technicians in this outdoor field trip at Everett School District’s Lively Environmental Center! Students will conduct chemical and biological water quality testing at Lively Creek using real scientific equipment, take a nature walk through forested trails, and spend some time getting to know the raindrops that runoff into the stream.

 


 

What is a Wetland? @ North Creek Park

Walk along a floating boardwalk and get your hands dirty at the North Creek wetlands. During your visit to North Creek Park, students will learn the definition and function of a wetland. They’ll identify water-loving plants and soils, use scientific equipment to investigate the water that flows into North Creek, and explore the important ecological role of functional wetlands.
