The SFUSD Environmental Science Center Mission Statement
Since 1976, the SFUSD Environmental Science Center has aimed to encourage nature identity and environmental awareness in SFUSD's youth by providing science-based educational experiences in the outdoors. Our work is to support teachers, students, and chaperones from SFUSD to understand local ecosystems and to empower them to become responsible stewards of our environment. To achieve this, the ESC provides free day and overnight programs to SFUSD teachers, students, and chaperones.
