TeachWe teach Petaluma youth by bringing the River to them through their schools and educators. Our programs bring to life the history, ecology and economics of the River and help kids understand the significant role it plays in our town.


Friends of the Petaluma River believes that educators are our community’s most important resource. By teaching Petaluma’s youth, our teachers are guiding future generations of Petalumans whose decisions will determine the health and vitality of our wetlands and other natural resources.


The Watershed Classroom is designed to support the implementation of exceptionally engaging curriculum about the Petaluma River and Watershed with the goal of inspiring youth, improving local education, and conserving and celebrating our local environment.
