Welcome to Fall in the Field!

SOU’s Environmental Education graduate students are excited to serve Southern Oregon for another Outdoor Education season of Fall in the Field! 

Virtual and in-person programs are being to be offered this year!

What is Fall in the Field?

Fall in the Field is an environmental education program proudly offered by graduate students in the M.S. in Environmental Education program at Southern Oregon University.  

Each year, graduate students design a place-based, standards-aligned Outdoor School experience through adventurous day trips and engaging residential programs.  This year’s theme explores “Reimagining Resiliency: Building Community through Ecology” through inquiry and experiential learning.  Fall in the Field provides exciting and meaningful outdoor programs that your students are sure to remember.

This year’s Fall in the Field will target 4rd-12th grade students (as well as adult and family programs!). School programs will run September 9- October 29, 2021. We will run programs out of the Cascade Siskiyou National Monument, Rogue River Preserve, and host overnight residential programs at Willow-Witt Ranch! Mark your calendars, we can’t wait to see you!

Indigenous Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument is the traditional homelands of the Athapaskan, Klamath, Latgawa, Modoc, Shasta, and Takelma peoples before being removed into designated reservations. We are committed to learning the cultural history of this land which we are privileged to learn and teach on, and ask each participant who visits tribal websites to learn how they can support the current cultural livelihoods of the original peoples of this place.
