Environment in Peninsula
Volunteer to work with small groups of children from kindergarten through sixth grade and involve them in hands-on, discovery-based science and nature learning in local schools. Use innovative methods of teaching children about Bay Area environments. Volunteers also lead field trips to explore local ecosystems and reinforce concepts introduced in the classroom. Volunteers can choose the school location that is closest to them.
