What We Do
Our programs immerse students in day trips and multi-day overnight ecology camps in spectacular natural settings on Nevada’s shoreline of Lake Tahoe and other local sites.
Students hike, snowshoe, learn local ecology with hands-on standards-based activities, and volunteer on conservation projects.
Lessons build healthy habits, social and academic skills, and a connection to community and the natural world. Teachers receive STEM training and re-certification credit.
Great Basin Outdoor School operates exclusively in the Great Basin area communities and has served thousands of children and adults as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit since 1998. Children in need are included thanks to generous community support.
Education for all season
Each program Great Basin Outdoor School teaches is tailored to their specific season, environment, and conditions.
We are now booking for our upcoming 2020 Spring and Fall Science programs on the shore of Lake Tahoe.
