Class is held Wednesdays from 9 am to 3 pm. There are also several weekend and overnight classes during the year.


The bulk of the program consists of hands-on classroom work; outdoor study and collection field trips; and informative lecture. Students are also expected to complete homework and guided research on their own.


Class time is at the Earthwalk Northwest classroom in Bellevue, WA, about 20 minutes east of Seattle. Regular class field trips leave from the classroom as well. There are three overnight trips in different locations: Eastern Washington, lower Puget Sound, and the San Juan Islands.


Tuition is $3,800 and includes six months of weekly class instruction, class materials, and field trips.
