Outreach & Education

Watershed Education Adventures (WEA)

Watershed Education Adventures (WEA) specializes in creating intimate relationships with nature. We encourage curiosity and creativity as well as getting dirty and having fun while learning about the wonders of nature.

We believe strongly that we are teaching the leaders and community members of the future, and that exposing them to nature as much as possible will help them make more informed decisions and become conciencious citizens.

While WEA focuses primarily on educating children, we welcome people of all ages to join us in our adventures and explorations. Come out and play with us!
