Wide-eyed, “Gee-whiz” excitement that dovetails state standards and school curricula in an outdoor setting

Field Trip The Spring Rivers Foundation Outdoor Education Program uses real-world science to enhance the fun and relevance of learning for kindergarten through high school aged students in Shasta County.

Our team of local scientists and educators designed a program that integrates academic standards with local natural resources through Place-Based Learning using several outdoor learning laboratories.

A team of over seventy volunteer docents and many local organizations help to make the program a success. The Outdoor Education Program is designed to grow connections between individuals, the community, and our surroundings by creating unique outdoor learning opportunities that connect students and adults with the natural world and promote physical activity.
