Mission Statement

The mission of the Earth Discovery Institute is to conduct innovative, effective science education and conservation stewardship programs that are integrated with science-driven ecological conservation.

Description

WHAT WE DO
Science-focused Environmental Service-Learning: 3,500 students annually learn grade-level science curriculum through hands-on, land-based learning in small groups. Follow-up projects integrate knowledge with a sense of empowerment and social responsibility.
Community Education and Outreach: Volunteer environmental stewardship events and weekly volunteer teams in two locations, conservation interpretive activities involve citizens directly in their local conserved lands. Quarterly newsletters and annual fire safety information for wildland-urban interface neighbors inform over 1,000 supporters about their nearby conserved lands and how to keep them healthy. Two volunteer patrol teams involve recreation users of conserved lands in keeping the land managers informed about safety and habitat issues.
