Invite an educator to your classroom

Pre-K – 12 classroom or school yard lessons and activities lead or modeled by a South Slough educator.

South Slough would like to help extend student learning beyond their field experience in the estuary. Pre- and post- activities will connect field trips to the classroom, and help students recognize patterns, concepts and ideas.

For those who cannot make it out to South Slough with their students, the reserve also offers engaging lessons about estuary ecosystems and the research being conducted at the South Slough Reserve and other reserves around the country.
