Environmental Education Overview

Environmental education programs play a vital role in carrying out the Conservancy's holistic watershed approach. Our community outreach programs begin at age three and progress to include adult and teacher education workshops.

Energetic public/private school and organized group programs serve students in the following school districts: Boyertown,  Methacton, North Penn, Owen J. Roberts, Pennridge, Perkiomen Valley, Souderton, Spring-Ford, Upper Merion, Upper Perkiomen, Wissahickon, and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.

All of our classes assist teachers in fulfilling the Pennsylvania Department of Education's (PDE) Academic Standards for "Environment and Ecology."

A variety of classes may be scheduled to take place at the Conservancy's brownstone barn or in the classroom. Reservations can be made by contacting Linda Oltman, Environmental Education Coordinator, at (610) 287-9383 or loltman@perkiomenwatershed.org.

Our Motto: Everybody Active, All the Time!
