Stewardship-based citizen science and service-learning
The Ecological Education Program at the Institute for Applied Ecology offers opportunities for K-12 students, teachers, and adult community members to engage in meaningful, place-based education through school-based programs, summer teacher workshops, Community Learning Courses, and volunteer work. In addition, we create curriculum to engage the future stewards of Oregon in the study of native plants and restoration.
