IslandWood is an environmental education nonprofit. We offer a variety of immersive programs throughout the Seattle region to help children, educators, and community members deepen their understanding of the world around them, explore important environmental issues, and see the power they have to make a positive impact on their communities and the planet.
Our programs – ranging from several days to several hours to several months – are designed to meet the different needs of the communities we serve. From the woods of Bainbridge Island, to streams in Seattle, to schoolyards in Tacoma, to the halls of the State Capitol building, we’re working to create hands-on learning experiences for all our region’s students, educators, and community members.
We understand there is an inextricable connection between educational justice, environmental justice, and racial equity. Embedding justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) throughout our organization is central to our work in environmental education, and to inspiring healthy communities and a healthy planet.
