Native Habitat Education

Our partnership with the next generation. 

We inspire and educate future generations about the importance of ecology and stewardship, both in our own native habitat gardens and in schools.

Student stewardship.

We work in partnership with the Larkspur-Corte Madera School District to initiate and install projects throughout all their campuses. 


For example, step into the Hawks' Garden at Neil Cummins Elementary, where students K-5 are immersed in hands-on learning amidst the vibrant plant life. This living classroom fosters a profound connection with nature and reveals the indispensable role of pollinators in our ecosystem.

Neil Cummins Elementary has been awarded an exciting and generous grant from NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association) and Refugia Marin will be responsible for implementing it.


This grant gives the school an 'Ocean Guardian School' status, and we will be responsible for projects about the conservation of local watersheds through plantings and water usage. We can't wait to get started! 

Building community.

We also work with other organizations and teams to foster community such as Home Ground Habitats. Charlotte Torgovitsky, a passionate and inspiring naturalist, has been a generous and fundamental partner, donating native and water-wise plants to our projects. 


And we encourage young people from the community to volunteer their time and effort, including Girl Scout troops and students carrying out their community service hours. Get in touch to see how you can participate.
