4th Grade Outreach Program

All public fourth grade classes in the southern portion of Santa Barbara County participate in this environmental outreach program that ties to the framework of the State of California’s fourth grade curriculum for Life Science. This partnership with each school, at no cost to the schools, includes specially designed curriculum materials, classroom presentations that focus on basic botanic concepts, and study tours at Lotusland that provide many opportunities for hands-on learning in the field and reinforcement of the concepts taught in the classroom. Each
child leaves with their own succulent plant.
