Designated as the first national scenic byway, the Mountains to Sound Greenway connects 1.5 million acres of city parks, public forests, and untouched wilderness. The Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust uses the Greenway as an outdoor classroom in which to educate the public about the environment, in addition to the organization's other efforts to support conservation and local farming.
The Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust's Education Program teaches classes of students in grades 5–10 about the challenge of balancing environmental conservation with the needs of a growing population. The organization's programming combines an in-class, inquiry-based science curriculum with a hands-on field trip. Students travel to a nearby forest to take in tree-strewn mountaintops and vast, green valleys. Leafy visuals provide a backdrop for lessons about soils, environmental concerns for forests that border cities, recycling biosolids, and the effects of urban development on the life cycle of salmon. Last year the organization's educational programming served more than 3,000 students and it relies on donations to continue to provide this service.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help fund educational programming for schoolchildren about environmental issues and sustainability. If G-Team members raise $550, the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust can provide one class with a lesson and field trip, including transportation. Each additional $550 raised will fund a classroom lesson, field trip, and transportation for another class of students.
