CoSEE in brief

The Collaborative for Socio-Ecological Engagement (Collaborative/CoSEE) is a university-led research and learning unit that operates at the Environmental Education and Research Center (EERC) in Saint Edward State Park (SESP). The EERC is a dedicated and recently renovated 2,700 square foot facility located within the boundaries of Saint Edward State Park, on the northeast shore of Lake Washington and approximately six miles from the UW Bothell campus. The facility includes a 2,000 square-foot classroom and office space and a 700 square-foot open learning area adjacent to the indoor space.

The Collaborative hosts interdisciplinary and equity-centered place-based research and learning programs in the Bothell-Kenmore-Kirkland surrounding region with a broad reach to the surrounding urban communities.

The CoSEE’s mission is accomplished through UW-partnered undergraduate field study, community-engaged research experiences and place-based creative practices, youth and family outreach, community science programs, and co-curricular partnerships with K-12 schools.

Land acknowledgement

The EERC stands on the lands of the Coast Salish Peoples, whose ancestors resided here since time immemorial. Many Indigenous peoples from different Nations, Tribes, and Bands thrive in this place—alive and strong
