2019 Youth Education
Siskiyou Field Institute offers place-based educational programming for youth 4 years of age and up. We are celebrating our 20th year as an educational institution by deepening our youth program curriculum. It has been planned to more closely align with the SFI mission of student-driven inquiry and hands-on environmental science in the field. SFI Youth Education programs are available for school groups and private groups. Parents can also select from a variety of programs for their child. We have something for everyone, ranging from single-day programs to week-long overnight residential camps.
