The Best Environment for Studying the Environment
We’re located at the south end of the Salish Sea (Puget Sound) in Olympia, Washington, so you’ll be close to mountains, rivers, wetlands, forests, and shorelines. It’s the ideal location for studying and enjoying the natural environment.
Influence Environmental Policy and Practice
As the state capital, Olympia is home to legislators and state agencies, with opportunities to learn and influence environmental policy and practice.
You’ll also appreciate the vibrant local food scene, including the Farmer’s Market, and Evergreen's own organic farm. Find out more about what makes Olympia special.
