Life with young people is rarely calm. From wake up until bedtime, children of all ages require attention and energy from their grown up caregivers. Although parents of teenagers have a little more freedom, the mental demands remain substantial.
This school year, over 5,000 K-12 students in the Columbia Basin will venture beyond the walls of their classroom, where they will deepen their knowledge of the natural world with help from local mentors as part of the Columbia Basin Environmental Education Network’s (CBEEN) Wild Voices program.

Children and families in the Columbia Basin will soon benefit from 100 new licensed child care spaces and new equipment and improvements in 41 facilities. This is thanks to over $1 million from Columbia Basin Trust’s new Child Care Capital Grants program.
