For the classroom and Beyond
For more than 40 years, tens of thousands of teachers across the U.S. have successfully used the environment to help students improve their test scores, and their overall knowledge of science, math, reading and language.
From the beginning, our state has been a leader in environmental education, also known now as sustainability education.
Research shows that when young people apply science, math, reading and writing to an outdoor environment – to real-world situations – students to retain information better, are more excited about learning, have greater interest in further studies, and get along better with classmates.
Audubon supports sustainability education in Washington through chapter programs, E3 Washington (Education, Environment and Economy), and the Environmental Education Association of Washington; and nationally.
