Environmental Education

Our mission is to enhance environmental education throughout the Upper Penns Creek Watershed in the mosaic of healthy and functioning ecosystems, through place-based, experiential, and service learning opportunities.


While our primary focus is on education in the Penns Valley Area schools, we are growing our community education efforts through workshops and project-based learning.


The Education Committee works on the assumption that everybody has something to learn, as well as something to teach, and that every encounter with nature is a learning opportunity.


We partner with local environmental and conservation-oriented organizations to support our programming efforts, including ChicoryLane Farm and Muddy Paws Marsh.
