A- Our Vision

 

Thank you to the staff and graduate students of the McCall Outdoor Science School (MOSS) in McCall, Idaho and the University of Idaho, College of Natural Resources and Society. Much of the new SFI program content, policy, procedure and curriculum design has been modeled after this stellar outdoor education institution. Special thanks to Karla Eitel (MOSS Professor and Director of Education) and Gary Thompson (MOSS Leadership Coordinator) for graciously sharing their knowledge with us.

Educational Philosophy and Goals

Here at SFI we use our richly biodiverse natural area as a bridge to connect students to sciences, math, arts and literature. Our immersive science and nature programs feed the mind and spirit as they help students experience and observe the natural world. We aim for instructor-to-student ratios of at least 1:10 to ensure individual attention and time to explore each student's curiosity. Instructors serve as guides, creating hands-on activity platforms for students to observe and to think critically.


We hope to create a more engaged and empowered citizen capable of solving real-world problems and collaborating within their community.

Our goals are:

To instill a sense of wonder and curiosity while exploring ecological systems

To impart to students a better understanding of connectivity in their own natural and social networks
