Mission: Seaside Sustainability aims to be a leader in environmental and STEM educational programs and initiatives.

Vision: 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.”

 The main channels through which we help develop the next generation of environmentally conscious youth are engaging and hands-on adventure programs. These programs provide children with an opportunity to participate in enriching experiences with nature.

 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. 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.
