 Sierra Nevada Journeys offers innovative outdoor, science-based education programs for youth to develop critical thinking skills and to inspire natural resource stewardship. You don’t need a degree in science to make a difference in science education. We have volunteers from all walks of life and all backgrounds: parents, teachers, foresters, bankers, Rotarians and more. Whether you join us for a few hours or a few years, we are very grateful to everyone who joins the Sierra Nevada Journeys’ mission.
