Mission & Vision

The mission of the Siskiyou Field Institute is to increase the understanding of, and connection to the Klamath-Siskiyou ecoregion through education, scientific research, and public engagement. 

Our Vision

Welcome to the Siskiyou Field Institute (SFI), where people come to learn about and explore the amazing Klamath-Siskiyou bioregion, a land of steep mountains, wild rivers and an unusual diversity of species and habitats. SFI is a conduit for scientists and naturalists to share their passion and knowledge with the public each year through Adult Education field courses and SFI Youth Education Programs.

Appealing to kids in our community, curious teens, developing professionals or lifelong learners, there’s something for everyone at the Siskiyou Field Institute. We are proud to offer high quality programming for all ages. SFI provides a wide variety of courses on topics from climate science to mushrooms.

Siskiyou Field Institute also facilitates researchers and other academic groups during the field season. Our location allows all students and scholars immediate access to the world-famous serpentinite and old-growth forests of the Klamath-Siskiyous.
