Coming in January at SFI!
Movie Saturday on January 25 to launch our SnowSchool youth program on Mt. Ashland. Details to be announced. We welcome donations of kids' winter gear, including warm waterproof clothing (especially gloves).
Our new website debuts on January 27th.
You can request a catalog by mail to be delivered in mid to late February.

SFI-Instructed Watershed Programs on Mt. Ashland
SnowSchool is the nationally based program that connects local watershed science with winter outdoor activities for children from grade school to high school. SFI will offer SnowSchool in 4-hour segments mid-January through March. Need-based scholarships may be available. Teachers and parents can find out more by emailing our Youth Education Programs coordinator Angie Fuhrmann, email@example.com or by filling out a Field Trip Contact form.
SnowSchool Volunteers Needed!
We are looking for volunteers to help teach K-12 students about our local watershed while they strap on snowshoes, romp in the snow and study snow crystals at Mt. Ashland Ski Area. Volunteering dates available mid January through March.
