Silverwood Science Discovery


The Silverwood Science Discovery program combines an in-class lesson with a Naturalist-guided field trip to our Silverwood Wildlife Sanctuary in Lakeside. This interdisciplinary curriculum explores San Diego's chaparral and coastal sage scrub habitats and is aligned to meet California Content Standards for Science. While on the field trip, children learn about native plants, wildlife and their adaptations to our Mediterranean climate. They learn about wildlife tracking, build observation skills, and learn intriguing facts about the natural history of the area such as which plants were traditional food sources for the native Kumeyaay inhabitants.
