Educational Programs for Students

The Watershed Ecology Center is excited to offer educational outreach programs during the school year.

Each presentation includes hands-on learning activities and is correlated to the South Carolina State Standards. Most programs are offered free of charge to Spartanburg County and Greer area young people in public, private, or home school groups! Programs not covered by our current grants require a small fee. Because of the high demand for our programs, we ask that you limit your requests to two free programs per grade level.


First Grade

Second Grade

Third Grade

Fourth Grade

Fifth Grade

Sixth Grade

Seventh Grade
