Education Programs

The Corvallis Environmental Center is providing a variety of in-person and virtual programs, all designed to support kids’ education through this tough time! With a lens of STEAM education, we will teach nature and gardening lessons through stories, games, art, and science investigations.

Our current session of programs runs until Feb. 26th and is open for registration. Our next session will run March 1st-April 16th. Registration for that session will open in Mid-February.


We are also continuously adding new engaging virtual content to CEC Connects- Check it out.
