Welcome to the

After 10 years of providing outdoor environmental science programs in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, we are sad to report that our Southern California campus is closed for the foreseeable future. Our partners at the National Park Service are still recovering from the November 2018 Woolsey Fire, and Circle X Ranch, one of our main program sites, will be unavailable for educational programs for the next 3-5 years. 

Thanks to the incredible partnership of Southern California schools and teachers, we connected over 14,500 students to the wonder and science of nature in the Santa Monica Mountains. We remain committed to serving these students and will continue to explore ways to engage Los Angeles-area kids at our other California campuses in Yosemite National Park and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
