After-School Programs

ACCPF brings The Outdoor Connection, a trailside learning center, to your school or a site within walking distance. Our Nature Art program is a series of one-day nature art workshops for youth. Nature art workshops using organic materials found in nature—instruction provided by ACCPF staff. In our Nature Science program, we adapt our Watershed Explorers and Curiosity Kids curriculum for out-of-school enrichment and fun. Nature science programs aim to protect our environment by involving youth in hands-on learning about healthy ecosystems, the Napa watershed, and the human impact on our surrounding habitats. In our Nature Play program we use the concepts of loose parts play with natural materials in an outdoor setting, promoting a connection with the natural world.

Watershed Explorers

The ACCPF Watershed Explorers program is designed for third through fifth-grade elementary students in American Canyon that enhances curriculum standards in environmental science, biology, chemistry, and more. Watershed explorers utilize The Napa River Bay Trail, Wetlands Edge trailhead, the heart of the American Canyon outdoor community. This beautiful spot is one of the most biodiverse areas of the San Francisco Bay Area and is easily accessible to the community. Students participate in a three-part series focused on protecting and learning about our watersheds. Watershed Explorers aims to protect our environment by getting students involved in hands-on learning about healthy ecosystems, water quality, plant and animal lifecycles, and the human impact on our surrounding habitats.
