The goal of the Outdoor Learning Center is to connect students to nature. It’s a teaching and learning facility for students and teachers in grades Pre K-College. Their site includes several teaching stations that give students opportunities to learn about the varied ecosystems of Eastern WA. Students spend their time learning about topics such as plants, wildlife, geology, water ecology, and conservation just to name a few! Their campus features two classroom buildings with many things to see and interact with, live and taxidermied animal displays, several ponds and streams, and many native plant species. Their facility has tortoises, boa constrictor, turtles, geckos, bearded dragon, falcon, Madagascar hissing cockroaches, guinea pigs, and African cichlids. They also have a raptor sanctuary with educational birds including a pair of great horned owls. Come see who they bring from their menagerie to Valleyfest!
