Education & Service Learning

Service learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. VSWCD supports service learning through a variety of community based education programs and workshops. This is a great opportunity for middle and high school students to get involved with our mission and become advocates for our local environment. If interested in how you can get involved, please email

The Dan Goodman Award is offered to any high school student grade 9-12 in Valencia County that has a love for nature and conservation efforts in our community. The pdf copy of application is below and applications are due April 1, 2019. Questions or interested? Email
