Seattle Field Study Site Histories
As of June 2020, The Community Waters Field Study has been discontinued in Seattle as Seattle Public Schools shifts entirely to Amplify Science. We are working on developing a NEW field trip for 2022-23 to enhance and localize the Ecosystems Restoration Amplify unit!
For teachers in Seattle that are interested in exploring local parks with students, these one to two page flyers provide information related to the histories of each of these sites.
