The area called Crissy Field has changed greatly over time, reflecting the differing values of the people who have managed the land. Today, the restored wetland offers a rich habitat and an abundance of learning opportunities.
How does culture influence our relationship with the environment?
Living with the Landallows students to explore human relationship with the natural world from the perspective of Ohlone Indigenous knowledge and contrasting western science approaches. By observing the wetland’s past and present, students learn about what wetlands provide and how humans impact this habitat.
The in-person program is structured in three sections:
pre-site classroom activities facilitated virtually by NPS staff and the teacher
a field visit to Crissy Marsh facilitated by NPS staff
a post-visit lesson facilitated by the teacher
