School & Group Environmental Science at Golden Gate

On the shores of the Pacific Ocean, on the site of a historic WWII military post, students study environmental science, learn teamwork, and strengthen their connection with nature.

Learning in nature’s classroom

NatureBridge environmental science programs in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area offer students in grades K-12 the opportunity to learn hands-on science in one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s most pristine coastal areas.  Our two- to five-day residential outdoor science programs are led by experienced educators and customized to enhance your school’s curriculum. 

  • Environmental education in a national park: Located just minutes from San Francisco, students can explore the shores of Rodeo Beach as well as 60 miles of coastal hillsides rich with beaches, cliffs, estuary, chaparral, and woodlands.
  • Inquiry-based learning:  Students collect and identify macroinvertebrates in Rodeo Pond, observe seals from the bluffs, and study the adaptations of tide pool creatures in our state-of-the-art intertidal marine lab. 
  • Inspired to action: Students see up close the impact their actions have on the world around them through composting food waste or volunteering at the plant nursery which inspires students toward lifelong stewardship.
