Capitol Land Trust is committed to developing the next generation of conservation leaders by providing access to our conserved lands for general education, group development and STEM learning. Real life field experiences that inspire scientific inquiry and a conservation ethic are essential for the citizens of tomorrow who will continue to steward our conserved lands in perpetuity.
Each year, we provide outdoor learning experiences for over 500 youth in South Puget Sound. We currently have 2 programs that bring students to conservation properties, one with 7th grade students and one with 3rd grade students. Students visit conservation properties to learn about ecology, history, participate in service-learning projects, and more!
These programs are supported by volunteers like you. Not only are these opportunities great chances to spend quality time outdoors but are also great opportunities to learn more about local ecology and make new friends!
Are you part of a school or youth organization interested in bringing a group to one of our properties for education, scientific exploration, or for hands on restoration work? Give us a call or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Inspiring Kids Preserve
We are currently designing 108 acres on Henderson Inlet on Puget Sound to create a special preserve, where kids can learn and play.
We have teamed up with the Puget Sound Estuarium and North Thurston Public Schools to bring 3rd graders to Inspiring Kids Preserve as a part of their science curriculum. Students learn about local habitats, conservation, and more. Learn more and volunteer!
Shelton FieldSTEM® Initiative at Bayshore Preserve
We have teamed up with Pacific Education Institute, the Puget Sound Estuarium, and the Shelton School District to get 7th graders out to our Bayshore Preserve as part of their science curriculum. Students learn about macro invertebrates, stream flow, and salt marsh habitats. Learn more and volunteer!
Thank you to the Community Foundation of South Puget Sound, the Russell Family Foundation, and The Butler Foundation for their support of these programs.
