Environmental Education Resources

At a Glance

San Mateo County is home to many non-formal learning providers delivering quality environmental education experiences and resources. At the San Mateo Environmental Learning Collaborative (SM ELC) last July, the following providers each presented a brief overview of the programs and support materials that they offer for students and educators. This is by no means an exhaustive list of environmental education providers in San Mateo County, but we would like to share the presentations of the SM ELC participants as a potential resource for educators and administrators. We look forward to connecting with and highlighting additional providers in the future.
