Coalition members are working with school districts around Whatcom County in an effort to plan the 2022 School Partnership Convening. Community Partners and School Leadership work together to build nature based learning experiences into curriculum and identify where there are gaps and opportunities to serve more students.
The Connections Program serves grades K-5 at Mt. Baker and Blaine School Districts for the 21-22 and the 22-23 school year. Five Coalition Community Partners are currently providing programming with the hope to expand opportunities to serve more students in the future. This collaborative project is currently funded with the support of WA State Representative, Alicia Rule.
Community Partners are developing a Pathways model proposal for Lynden School District that will provide nature based learning opportunities for K-8th grade. If you're interested in joining this team to include your programming at the Lynden School District, contact the Program Lead for more information.
The Snow to Sea Program intends to serve grades 6-8 at Nooksack Valley Middle School for the 22/23 school year. Six Coalition Community Partners are gearing up to provide a geographically cohesive set of outdoor experiences across the watershed.
