Youth Field Days

By connecting children to nature through scientific inquiry, our Youth Education Program cultivates life-long learners and the next generation of stewards for our planet. We work directly with our local schools to bring kids to WRI to learn, experience, and appreciate the natural world.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

After school exploration of nature through art and adventure! Small class size, high quality instruction, and a dedicated team to provide a safe and friendly atmosphere for development and making new friends!

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

The Travelling Naturalist program will ensure that the most needy and challenged students in the Wenatchee School District get the opportunity to connect with the natural world through the special experience of hands on, outdoor science education.

WRI sends our staff to Columbia, Lewis-Clark, Newberry, Mission View, and Lincoln Elementary schools in Wenatchee to introduce and excite students about the natural world right in their back yard!

We work collaboratively with the school district staff to provide enhanced learning experiences for the district's most challenged students.

More than 600 students, each year, will get the opportunity use scientific tools, learn about local flora, birds and BUGS! Developing their own personal appreciation for the natural world, and an understanding of their role in protecting it, through inquiry based, hands on learning.
