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.
