Shasta Land Trust recently had the pleasure to work with the Spring Rivers Foundation on some of their environmental education field trips at Sucker Springs Creek near Burney. Jake Dickmann, our AmeriCorps conservation associate, teamed up with them to learn how they connect students and adults with the natural world.

Jake experienced several of their hands-on field trip stations for kindergartners and third graders, which involved lessons on the living and non-living objects around us and lessons on population ecology with native deer. Spring Rivers Foundation has an active outdoor education program that uses place-based learning at outdoor laboratories throughout Shasta County. 

A huge thank you to Spring Rivers Foundation for a great opportunity to collaborate. We look forward to partnering with them in the very near future!
