ECO After School

We believe adventure creates resilience, early exploration fosters life-long curiosity, and time spent learning outdoors is never dull.

After School Ecology Club happens out in the schoolyard. We guide students to play, dive into field experiments, and build friendships across grade levels. They’ll explore and discover their school grounds in new ways! Our Ecology Clubs happen in the fall, winter, and spring with seasonal investigations and activities. The adventures continue into the summer with all day camps at the Learning Gardens Laboratory.


Contact lauren@ecologyoutdoors.org with your questions or to bring Ecology Club to your school.


Winter Ecology Club 2019

Does it seem like every time you walk out into our rainy Oregon weather your student finds a puddle to splash in, or a mud pie to make, or giggles with glee at the discovery of slugs and worms? We have the place for them! This winter, join us as we revel in everything the Pacific Northwest sends our way. We'll be diving into the magic of the season through evergreen studies, weather experiments, artistic explorations, games, and so much more. 

We'll be spending at least half our time outside (unless there are extreme conditions) and require students to have appropriate outdoor gear (rain boots, rain coat, hat, and rain pants or a change of pants-- please no umbrellas). If you do not have access to gear please email lauren@ecologyoutdoors.org and she will get you set up.
