PARENTS AND STUDENTS
Cal-Wood’s Science-Based Environmental Education Programs are residential, outdoor immersion programs for students of all ages. With each school, Cal-Wood education staff partner with visiting teachers to tailor a specific set of learning objectives that are relevant to the needs of the students, and support STEM learning objectives. Cal-Wood’s 1,200-acre pristine classroom provides hands-on learning experiences to students of all ages in all curricular areas. For example, students can learn math, science, and critical thinking, and issue analysis skills by collecting and processing data about the effects of pine beetles on trees, soil, and water.In all programming, Cal-Wood incorporates best practices in environmental and STEM education, breaks down socio-economic barriers for nature-based learning, innovates strategies to best engage linguistically diverse students, and models conservation and stewardship.
