JSU Field Schools is a project of EPIC, the Environmental Policy and Information Center. Now in its seventeenth year, the Field School continues to grow and expand its offerings. There are many programs to choose from at JSU's Field Schools.

JSU Field School programs and events cultivate a comprehension of Alabama’s natural and cultural significance, celebrate diversity, and foster stewardship of the natural world. Our instructors apply immersion-based learning, Natural History interpretation and outdoor adventure to create unique programs that are not only educational but extremely fun. So whether you join us for a hike, a paddling trip, a campfire talk, an astronomy safari, or an environmental arts workshop, you will be enchanted by our style of teaching.
Our multimillion dollar “Little River Canyon Center” is currently under construction near Ft. Payne, AL. This center will adjoin the Little River Canyon National Preserve. We hope to open the doors to the public in early Spring 2009.

Check the menu on the right for more information about the Field School and its programs. Web links at the top of the page will send you to other projects undertaken by EPIC.
