About Local Schoolyard Habitats


Even before the Sammamish Community Wildlife Habitat Project began, six schools in our Sammamish community had become certified Schoolyard Habitats with the National Wildlife Federation.

Congratulations to the educators, administrators, students and volunteers that made it possible for the following schools to lead the way and be role models for other schools in our local community.

  • Red Gate Farm Preschool
  • Arbor Montessori School
  • Sammamish Children’s School
  • Christa McAuliffe Elementary
  • Discovery Elementary
  • Creekside Elementary School
  • Elizabeth Blackwell Elementary School
  • Inglewood Junior High School
  • Sunny Hills Elementary

Through the National Wildlife Federation’s national initiative called Be Out Thereā„¢ the campaign provides practical tools for millions of parents, educators, and caregivers to make outdoor time a part of our children’s daily activities.
