Did you know… The 7 Chakras are the centers in our body in which energy flows through. Blocked energy in our Chakras can often have a negative effect on us mentally, physically and spiritually. By opening up your lower spine with stretching moves can help your Root Chakra which is what influences how grounded and secure we feel. If you are in touch with your Sacral Chakra in the lower abdomen you will feel more creative, happy, and more easily accept change.

The Environment Science Center (ESC) is an outstanding organization in Burien that provides environmental stewardship, sustainability, and academic achievement through science based education. ESC’s beautiful new facility is located on Seahurst Park’s beach approximately ¼ mile north of the main park entry.

Volunteer with ESC

Environmental Programs Available for Local Schools

Make friends with like-minded people, apply your skills, gain job experience, and give back to your community!

Local teachers and school staff can contract with ESC to provide environmental education workshops for their students during the school year. Available courses are listed below.

Terrific opportunities to support environmental education in your own community are abundant at ESC. Whether you have 20 years experience in database management, are an amateur photographer, want to learn more about our natural environment, or have no experience at all, we have a place for you.

Salmon Heroes grades 4-12 Offered Fall only. Classroom presentation or both classroom and field study option available.

Available throughout the school year

Follow the Flow Grades K-2 Explores our water cycle, different properties of water, and the importance of watershed health and water quality.
