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 are guided through their experience by trained outdoor education staff members where direct experience and observation provide unique learning opportunities. Students journey through the Thousand Pines’ “wilderness” on numerous trail hikes throughout the week to investigate the local flora, fauna, geology, habitats, ecosystems, meteorology, weather and constellations.
