What our education partners say about us:

Baytech School students and their teacher pose in front of a sprawling oak tree overlooking Oakland.


"FOSC is a fantastic and essential treasure in Oakland. It gives us the opportunity to be in tune with nature and respect the plants that keep us humans surviving. We only have one Earth and FOSC is teaching us how to save it—one seed at a time." 

–Kristine Ilochi | Oakland Educator

Urban Promise Academy students use binoculars to observe birds at the Oakland estuary


"Through FOSC, my students have learned about the plants and animals of their local watershed and participated in habitat restoration and litter pickup. I really appreciate the way that FOSC has given my students the opportunity to see their neighborhood with new eyes." 

–Laura Young | Oakland Educator

The watershed is a living lab.
