Project SEE

Project SEE

Since 1970, Concord School District has made environmental education part of its curriculum. The Science and Environmental Education program is a direct complement to the district's elementary science curriculum, teaching not only science skills but life skills, social responsibility, and even the ABCs. Elementary grade-level programming takes place in classrooms, schoolyards and throughout the community. The White Farm outdoor laboratory and learning center on Clinton Street are special facilities operated by the environmental education program.

The program's goal is to provide Concord students with concrete "hands-on" science and environmental learning experiences and to develop scientific awareness and problem-solving skills.

You are welcome to visit White Farm at any time to explore the outdoors for yourself! Come hike, bird-watch, or pull weeds in the garden! 

White Farm is located on Clinton Street in Concord.

We hope to see you!

As coordinator of Concord School District's Project SEE, LuAnne Pigeon loves the opportunity to work with students and teachers. Whether it's exploring winter ecosystems on snowshoes or determining which simple machine will make the work seem easiest, her natural enthusiasm and curiosity support the scientific process of learning about our environment. LuAnne has adopted as her own a Jacques Cousteau quote passed on to her: "If they love it, they will save it." She believes the better children understand the world they live in, the better choices they can make for its safekeeping.

We will understand only what we are taught."
