The Problem

Children are growing up in a world full of noise and distraction. As the world continues to develop, access to and time spent in nature are becoming threatened.

The Solution

When a child connects with the outdoors and the habitats near them, they become dedicated to protecting it. Teachers need a great curriculum and new teachers need training on how to teach Science so it’s interactive and engaging for students.

Water and wildlife education

Who We Are

We are a small and passionate group of nature-lovers, scientists, and educators working toward ensuring every child has access to forming a connection with the natural world. We train teachers on how to make Science fun and engaging with our natural habitat and water pollution prevention-focused curricula. We provide a field trip to the Splash Science Center in Mather.  Splash is passionate about being the region’s resource for outreach and education centered on creating the next generation of nature stewards. We are ensuring that every child understands the impact they make on the environment, through the choices made at home.

Who Loves Us

Sheila Lauk, Empire Oaks, FCUSD, 5th grade

Not only did my class learn a lot, but I did as well. This generation is our future and it is important for them to see different parts of our ecosystem and how it is important to the area. One girl was sad to hear that only 5-10% of the Vernal pools still exist. She wants to grow up and make sure they are taken care of.
