"I have seen River of Words transform a class of disengaged students into a group excited to learn about the environment and penomet art. This program shapes the physical and personal environment of everyone who participates!"

— Jilian Hishaw, Missouri Regional Coordinator
River of Words trains teachers, park rangers, youth leaders, and other educators around the world to incorporate nature and the arts into their work with children and teens.

Since our founding in 1995, we have trained more than 2,000 teachers and engaged more than 150,000 young people in creating art and poetry about their local habitats. River of Words is now a program of The Center for Environmental Literacy (CEL) at Saint Mary's College of California. CEL is part of the Kalmanovitz School of Education at Saint Mary's, one of the finest teacher preparation institutions in the country.

He is a rope of darkness
Against rain-streaked grass
Green scales the color of ivy
