About Environmental Volunteers


2560 Embarcadero Road, Palo Alto, CA 94303, US

Mission Statement

To promote the understanding of and responsibility for the environment through hands-on science education.


In 1972, when awareness of threats to the San Francisco Bay ecosystem began to grow, a group of women concerned about preserving the estuary for future generations created a small, hands-on program for local children. The program included a field trip to the Bay so students could experience it, know it, enjoy it, and grow to take care of it. This was the birth of Environmental Volunteers. Since then, more than 300,000 children and adults have explored natural science learning with us!
