At Seattle Nature Adventures, we study forest and marine organisms and their habitats. Each week, we visit a local natural area in South or West Seattle for field study, including Seward Park, Alki, Dead Horse Canyon, and others. Children are transported to and from each location from Anna’s Little Farm in South Seattle. Students learn to keep a field journal of their observations. During bad weather, we visit local educational institutions like the Audubon Society, the Central Library, Seattle Aquarium, and SAM to learn about the relationships between plants, animals, and humans.
The program uses an emergent curriculum based on student interest. These experiences may include:
Foraging & Wildcrafting
Insect collecting & Observation
Scientific illustration & Field journaling
Tide pools & Marine animals
Tree ID & Preservation of botanical specimens
Integrating art & science
Aimed at students ages 8-16. Younger school-age siblings may join with special permission. Class includes instruction and unstructured exploration. Some instruction is tailored by age group, some is for all children.
