Outdoor Science Classroom
The Railyard Park Conservancy works with local elementary and middle school students to bring them outdoor-oriented environmental science literacy programs tailored to meet the Santa Fe Public School’s Core Curriculum and New Mexico Next Generation Science Standards. This program also allows for students to be immersed in contemporary art at SITE Santa Fe as well as be introduced to local farmers and produce at the nearby Santa Fe Farmers Market through our partnerships with these Railyard organizations.
Our Youth In-Service Program brings many different partners to learn about the Park and participate in the horticultural care and maintenance such as church groups, youth conservation corps group both nationally and locally, local green job training programs, and organizations that assist adjudicated and homeless youth in work experience programs. Projects include acequia maintenance, weed removal, tree planting, pruning, invasive species removal, composting and community garden projects
