Lafayette is excited to partner with Seattle Audubon’s Finding Urban Nature (FUN) program is an environmental education and science enrichment program for 3rd graders. The FUN program depends on parent and community volunteers like you who have the desire, time, and commitment to work with your own child and their classmates. Seattle Audubon’s Finding Urban Nature (FUN) program is an environmental education and science enrichment program for 3rd graders.
As a FUN volunteer you will:
Lead a small group of five or six students through each of the lessons, introducing the plants and animals present in the schoolyard habitat. There are four, hour-long outdoor lessons in the fall and four more in the spring, held weekly during school hours and on school grounds. Lessons begin with a brief introduction in the classroom, followed by the hands-on portion of the lesson outside.
No previous teaching or science experience is necessary. Seattle Audubon provides training, all materials, and support throughout the program.
The FUN program has been lauded by students, teachers, and families for the past 29 years. Your volunteerism will ensure that your child and future students will benefit from this unique program.
