North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center


Students at the North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center engaged in its Natural Resources classes are taking a variety of environmental data including weighing fish; monitoring juvenile fish populations, marine debris, and dead birds; and measuring water quality in several streams around Port Angeles, Washington. Their work is done in cooperation with Streamkeepers of Clallam County and Olympic Coast Natural Marine Sanctuary (OCNMS), and data from student observations is reported to Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST), NOAA, CoastSavers, Clallam county, Washington state, and Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe. Grant funds will provide equipment and waders to facilitate student observations.


Youth Learning as Citizen Environmental Scientists assists and rewards the implementation of inquiry-based, experiential science education where students do science and contribute to understanding of our environment through recognition and financial reward programs.

Grants range from support for taking simple measurements to teacher professional development and working for pervasive inclusion of student research projects in science teaching.
