Our high quality programs have received several awards for serving linguistically diverse audiences.

In all of our programming, Cal-Wood incorporates best practices of environmental and STEM education. We break down socio-economic and cultural barriers for nature-based learning, we model conservation and stewardship and we connect with English Language Learners through innovative and differentiated instruction through Sheltered English instruction integrating language and content instruction.
