Project SEE / White Farm

Project SEE (Science and Environmental Education) is a Concord School District science enrichment program founded in 1970. Project SEE delivers classroom and field trip programming to complement the district's elementary science curriculum.

Project SEE's goals are to 1) provide Concord students with concrete, hands-on science experiences, 2) develop scientific and environmental awareness, and 3) inspire good citizens with strong problem-solving and critical thinking skills.

The Project SEE team leads grade-level field trips for kindergarten to grade 6, both at the Project SEE Learning Center at White Farm and at locations around Concord. These field trips focus on outdoor and applied science experiences, building upon science content taught by teachers and tying to the Next Generation Science Standards. Our science educators also deliver regular lessons in all of our grade 1-5 classrooms, focusing on the hands-on practice of science skills.

You are welcome to visit White Farm to explore the outdoors for yourself. Come hike, ski, bird-watch, or pull weeds in the garden!

White Farm is located at 150 Clinton Street in Concord.

White Farm BioBlitz Results


The White Farm BioBlitz, held on June 1, was a great success. Local families joined in this community citizen science event at the district's White Farm property.

Together with naturalist volunteers, we identified 194 species of plants, animals, and fungi! Families also enjoyed nature and birding walks, wetland exploration, crafts, and more.

Thanks to all who participated! To learn more about the bioblitz, read this article in the Concord Monitor.

Spring with Project SEE

Looking for critters

All of our district's third grade classes joined us throughout May to explore the White Farm Wetlands. Students learned about the importance of wetlands, searched for organisms like dragonflies, frogs, and aquatic isopods in the marsh, and explored microscopic aquatic life using microscopes.

Kindergartners joined in the Force Olympics in their schoolyards to learn about how the forces of push and pull move things-- and make our playtime more fun!

Science Webpage

On our Engaging in Science web page, you'll find many science videos created by the Project SEE team during the pandemic, with related hands-on activities you can do at school or at home.

Teachers and families can also find links to online science resources, ideas for outdoor exploration, and citizen science opportunities.
