The LCSWMD also offers Summer Enviromobile activities for day camps, libraries, YMCA programs, and various other summer programs.
Field trip @ the Environmental Education center
Welcome to a day full of environmental edutainment at the EEC! Get your program requests in on the opening day of registration because the schedule for this FREE field trip books up quickly! With 27 years of combined experience in the field of environmental education, the educators will provide a day of quality, hands-on activities for your students. Doors open at 10am for registered field trip groups and programming concludes at 1p to allow time for your buses to return to their regular routes. Students are encouraged to think about what it takes to pack a “zero-waste lunch” because lunch time and eating space are provided for sack lunches. This site is available to Lake County schools, public, private and homeschool, ages preschool through adult, seeking a green experience for students. We look forward to hosting your group!
The ReUZ Room offers Lake County teachers, scout group leaders, church group leaders, and any other non-profit group the opportunity to gather clean, reusable supplies for arts and crafts projects.
