Environmental Services offers free, classroom and field study science education programs for K – college students within the City of Portland. Students learn about watershed health, urban ecology, the causes and effects of water pollution and what they can do to protect rivers and streams.
Clean Rivers Education programs address local water quality, environmental design and habitat issues. The program offers hands-on classroom lessons designed to complement teachers’ curricula. Classroom programs often serve as a prelude or follow-up to a field trip.
During field experiences, students spend time outdoors observing, interpreting, exploring and connecting to local natural areas. Students apply the skills they learn through watershed investigations and stewardship/community action projects. Clean Rivers Educators work with teachers to develop a unit of study to best meet learning objectives.
