K-12 Education at the Environmental Learning Center

The John Inskeep Environmental Learning Center (ELC) is a place where all ages can learn about the environment through hands-on, interactive activities that are both educational and fun!

We offer K-12 class field trips, day camps and a preschool program - all designed to enrich student learning through outdoor education. Students get to explore, interact with, measure and create within the lush outdoor surroundings of the ELC, which contains both forest and wetland habitats.

For more information about opportunities, contact sarah.bidwell@clackamas.edu.

Children attending ELC programs are expected to follow Oregon's immunization policy. Please visit the Oregon Health Authority for more information.
