A nationally recognized, award-winning 501(c)3 charitable organization


Mission and Vision:

Seaside Sustainability aims to be a leader in environmental and STEM educational programs and initiatives. We encourage members of the community young and old to build and nurture a relationship with local land and sea-scapes. We do this by educating people about the heavy costs of environmental degradation, and providing resources to develop skills, solutions, recognition, and community involvement to counterbalance that impact.



 
Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I may remember. Involve me and I will understand.”

One of Seaside’s strengths is collaborating with other like-minded local and regional organizations (and schools) on community projects and initiatives with a common sustainability goal and focus.  These powerful partnerships allow us to expand our breadth and scope of our collective projects in order to impact more people and our fragile environment by sharing & developing resources, expanding networks and inspiring community involvement in new and exciting ways. Once we have collaborations established, initiative members become directly involved with the issues by investigating diverse perspectives, going out in the field and interacting with community stakeholders.

We pride ourselves on our commitment to education as the primary means for achieving environmental change. The main channels through which we help develop the next generation of environmentally conscious youth are engaging and hands-on adventure programs.  Increased accessibility to summer learning opportunities helps combat summer learning loss and the achievement gap between high-, middle-, and low-income students, which can be exacerbated over summer months. These programs provide children with an opportunity to participate in enriching experiences that teach them about the environment and the importance of sustainability in their communities.
