Palouse Roots is a program of the Palouse-Clearwater Environmental Institute (PCEI) offering Moscow and the surrounding area an outdoor, early childhood program, that runs during the school year. The program sparks curiosity, builds confidence and offers opportunities to discover the natural world through play. Children explore local flora and fauna, experience the changing landscapes by seasons, engage in hands-on engineering, and much more.
