The Field Research Station, situated amid the coastal redwoods
near Gazos Creek, includes a lodge, two classrooms and twenty
small cabins and is an outstanding and beautiful place for
outdoor education programs.
Our goal is to create a self-supporting environmental education
center that offers practical classes in sustainable natural
resource managment and environmental restoration and provides
the Pescadero area community with informaton on natural resources
and land restoration.
education programs provide young people and adults
with opportunities to develop skills for the sustainable management
of the communitys natural environment. We integrate
educational activities with real life projects in environmental
research, land stewardship, and community cooperation.
