Catching up with our AmeriCorps educator

Published February 20th, 2020 in Education-AmeriCorps

Our 2019-2020 AmeriCorps, Robyn, has been hard at work the last 6 months running environmental education programs throughout Douglas County! She’s taught at 7 different schools and engaged with over 500 youth in the district. Through the Science Wednesday after-school program for 5th graders, Robyn has recently been found at Fir Grove Elementary, Lookingglass Elementary, Fullerton Elementary and Hucrest Elementary! She has also been working at Lincoln Middle School in Oakland on a weekly basis and has had several visits with Joseph Lane Middle School 6th grade scientists. Robyn has continued Forest Thursdays at the Boys and Girls Club of the Umpqua Valley as well. Here are a few highlight photos from Fall 2019 and Winter 2020! Robyn looks forward to keeping you updated on her engaging work with these aspiring watershed stewards.
