Educational Programs for Students

The Watershed Ecology Center is excited to continue to offer educational outreach programs during the upcoming school year.  We are providing virtual programs with hands-on delivered to the school to fill requests for this school year.  Due to the uncertainties of school schedules, we are making  modifications as we go and are  planning for all the re-opening scenarios that have been presented.  If you have already booked programs, we will be in touch through email soon.

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

The 2020-2021 calendar is almost full!  To request a program, email Lanita Wilson.
