Saturday Environmental Academy Accepting Students for Spring 2019
Our Saturday Environmental Academy (SEA) is currently accepting students for our Spring 2019 program!
Don't know much about SEA? SEA is a free, weekend-based, out-of-school-time environmental education program for middle school students. The goal of the program is to stimulate interest in and provide a fundamental education about the environment, and specifically that of the Anacostia River watershed. Classes are held on Saturdays from 8:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. at outdoor sites throughout the area. Students learn about their river—its history, health, and ecology—while developing their skills in team building, critical thinking, and scientific investigation. SEA involves students in a wide variety of outdoor learning opportunities, such as riverside cleanups, visits to museums, an overnight experience, and canoe trips, which provide children with a deeper understanding of the Anacostia River, the watershed community, and the impact that people have on the natural world.
Feel free to browse the webpage to learn more about the program and access the Spring 2019 program application.
SEA provides students opportunities to:
- Get outside and learn about their local environment
- Build their portfolio for high school and college
- Meet new friends
- Earn community service hours for related sessions!
Students from the Fall 2018 program enjoy a fun overnight experience at the Alice Ferguson Foundation's Hard Bargain Farm.
