Roberta McFarland Waskowitz Outdoor School Programs are a magical journey of discovery exploring the diversity of people and nature!  For over 68 years Waskowitz has been welcoming classes from throughout the Puget Sound region to investigate the beauty of the Pacific Northwest through classes in forest and river ecology as well as forming bonds with new friends from different school.  

Waskowitz supports and enhances the learning of the classroom through all the senses.  These hands on-minds on lessons encourage curiosity and an affinity for our natural world.  Whether elementary, middle school or high school students, all students learn about themselves and their place in our communities.

I look forward to working and learning with all that enter through the Waskowitz gates--from our weekly school groups, high school retreats to the WELS and WELS –PS students!   Come experience the Magic of Waskowitz!
