Calling 7th and 8th Graders Interested in the Environment!!

The Anacostia Watershed Society’s Saturday Environmental Academy (SEA) offers FREE 10-week Saturday programs each fall and spring for seventh and eighth graders. Each Saturday from 8:45-1:00, students engage in environmental activities in their local environment. Our meeting location is at the Sasha Bruce Center at 745 8th St., SE, near the Eastern Market metro. Activities increase environmental awareness and give students the opportunity to take positive action to improve their environment. Activities include boating trips, hikes, tree plantings, visits to community gardens, and overnight camping trips. Students must commit to coming each Saturday if accepted into a semester program. Some exceptions (e.g., SSAT testing) granted. Students from DC wards 5, 6, 7, & 8 and MD students within and near the Anacostia Watershed are strongly encouraged to apply.

Visit the website to learn more about SEA. If interested in applying for the 2017 Fall Program (Sep. 30 — Nov. 18), click here for the Fall 2017 Information form and Application. If you have any questions, please contact Catherine Estes, SEA Program Director, at or 202-368-1169.
