    means more than just learning outside: it means students and nature interact. Students will be able to see how nature works, observe flora and fauna, and even perform experiments.

Thousand Pines Outdoor Science School is located in the mountain community of Crestline, in the San Bernardino Mountains. Thousand Pines offers your students an outdoor classroom where we promote an understanding of the natural world through hands-on experiences with nature. Students will explore and experience the natural world at Thousand Pines on numerous hikes throughout the week to practice observing, collaborating, and drawing conclusions within the subjects of: Botany, Ecology, Geology, Astronomy, Ornithology, Entomology, and Sustainability.

Students are also challenged to engage in a variety of outdoor challenges such as archery, rock wall, wilderness survival, night hike, and team building exercises which are designed to help students achieve personal growth through their sense of accomplishment and increased self-confidence. Students are guided through their experience by trained outdoor education staff members where direct experience and observation provide unique learning opportunities.
