Families and Teachers

Animals need places to live and nest, and people need places to work and play. Ensuring that these opportunities remain comes down to working together through our connections to one another, our coworkers, our community, our extended family, and our children.

Conservation Northwest partners with local communities to find practical and inclusive solutions that make sense for forests, wildlife, and people. We protect wildlife and connect wildlands with children and families in mind, thinking ahead to a healthy and wild future for both current and future generations.

Interested in a presentation at your school or classroom? Please contact outreach (at) conservationnw.org and we’ll work to arrange it!

Noting the age of your students and a specific topic or animal species that you or your class is most interested in helps us narrow down which staffer is a good fit. Thank you!

We’re also the Washington affiliate organization for the National Wildlife Federation, America’s oldest and largest conservation group. NWF offers some amazing resources for getting kids involved in conservation, from their Ranger Rick and ZooBooks publications, to their Garden for Wildlife program!
