About

Want to get more involved with your community and help educate 3rd-5th grade students about the importance of birds and wetlands? Become a docent for our Wetlands Discovery Program! In-class programs take place on Tuesday mornings at various schools around Santa Clara County, typically from about 8AM-12PM. Field trips are on Thursday and/or Friday mornings from about 9AM-12PM, and typically take place at the Palo Alto Baylands. Note: you do NOT need to attend every program!

We have two training sessions coming up:

In-Class Activities: Tuesday, March 6 from 10AM-12PM at McClellan Ranch in Cupertino (SCVAS Office)
During this training session, we will go over the posters students use to complete worksheets, how students should use the binoculars, as well as volunteer paperwork.

Field Trip: Thursday, March 8 from 10AM-12PM at the Palo Alto Baylands

During this session, we will learn about the different concepts we teach the students during the field trip while walking around the Palo Alto Baylands.

If you’re able to attend and/or have questions, please email Kelsey Frey, Education Programs Coordinator, at programs@scvas.org. It’s a lot of fun, and you’ll feel great about giving back - no background in science needed. We teach you everything you need to know!
