Seattle Nature Adventures
Nature of the Pacific Northwest
An education program for homeschoolers
*Currently not in operation*
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. Students meet at our class location (4108 48th Ave S) OR our agreed upon meeting spot for the day. A field journal is kept to keep track of all their observations from the adventures we go on!
The program uses an emergent curriculum based on student interest.
These experiences may include:
Foraging & Wildcrafting
Ethnobotany & Native Plants
Coast Salish People
Insect collecting & Observation
Scientific illustration & Field journaling
Tide pools & Marine animals
Hydrology & Wetlands
Preservation of botanical specimens
Integrating art & science
