Join us in our 230 acre outdoor classroom where flowers, seeds and trees are the teachers.
Trees and Seasons
Young students will use their senses to explore the life-cycle of trees and plants as they change from season to season throughout the year. During this hour long adventure, your budding scientists will learn the basic needs of trees, the basic parts and what they are used for, and how they help the tree survive through different seasons. Recommended Age: Pre-K (ages 3-6 who haven’t attended kindergarten)
During this introduction into the plant world, your young scientists will hone their skills of observation to categorize & sort, gather data, and compare & contrast different plant parts. Recommended Age: K-2nd Grade
This program builds upon the topics covered in plants 101 and digs a little deeper into the parts of a plant and their specific functions. The interconnected nature of life is explored through observation and data collection. Recommended Age: 3rd-6th Grade
Sustainable Farming 101
During this introduction to sustainable farming, students will learn about interdependence and how the UW Farm tries to “work with nature” to create a healthy, balanced ecosystem. This fieldtrip takes place at the UW Farm located at the Center for Urban Horticulture. Recommended Age: 1st-3rd Grade
