Bring a group or class of 10-60 students to the Outdoor Classroom for our Spring 2019 Season. This spring, our teaching theme is Birds & the Ecosystem!
The Spring Season runs on weekdays (excluding Mondays) from April 23rd – May 31st, 2019. Classes are filled first come first serve. Please email Amy for availability and to sign your classroom up for a day of lessons!
Please visit THIS PAGE for Outdoor Classroom and lesson details, and to contact Amy for availability!
Volunteers provide school aged children in our community memorable half-day nature experiences at the Maxwelton Outdoor Classroom.
Join the talented crew of Outdoor Classroom volunteer teachers and help make these rich experiences happen. Whidbey Watershed Stewards staff provide the lesson plans, training, and all the tools you need to be successful! No experience is necessary.
Two opportunities for Spring 2019 Volunteer Teacher Training are on:
Lunch and good conversation provided!
The classroom is located at 7015 Maxwelton Rd, Clinton.
The spring activities will focus on birds and the ecosystem. Lesson details will be shared at the trainings.
As a volunteer you run a particular lesson/station and see four different groups of students at your station. Students come in classes so one day you might work with first grades and another day 5th grades. You choose the lesson you would like to lead, the age group and the dates that work for you. It is helpful to volunteer for one teaching day per week, or more if available.
The spring season will run from April 23rd – June 7th, Tuesday-Friday, from approximately 9:30 am -1:15 pm each day.
To sign up or for more information, contact Outdoor Classroom Coordinator Amy McInerney at firstname.lastname@example.org

In October, we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Maxwelton Outdoor Classroom!
Twenty years ago, educators, parents, and local experts collaborated to realize the vision of the Maxwelton Outdoor Classroom. What began as an idea to raise salmon in a classroom has grown to provide regular opportunities for hands on science and environmental education to K-8 students from Whidbey Island and beyond! The Classroom itself was dedicated in the Fall of 1997, and has become the vehicle to help educate more than 25,000 students since.
