KiDS: Kids into Discovering Science Outreach Program

KiDS puts graduate student scientists into classrooms in rural Lake County to teach 5th graders about the McLaughlin Reserve. The program also brings the kids out to the Reserve to learn about the unique geology and vegetation there by interacting with scientists in the field. This program forms a direct and personal link from rural classrooms to early-career scientists at our campus, enriching the education of both the 5th graders and UC Davis students. The program connects kids to nature in their own backyard.


Your gift will be dedicated to providing support for graduate students organizing and conducting this program and for educational material and equipment the 5th grade students will need in the classroom and on site at the Don and Sylvia McLaughlin Reserve.


The John Muir Institute of the Environment’s Natural Reserves works with kids of all ages in a variety of programs. Donation to the KiDS fund will be dedicated to the KiDS program, enabling us to provide hands-on science to 5th graders in northern California in the Lake County area. 

Please give to the KiDS Outreach Program. Our current priority is funding the KiDS program by supporting the graduate student educators.
