From the deepest canyon to the highest mountains ...
JSU Field Schools are a project of EPIC, the Environmental Policy and Information Center. Now in its second decade, the Field Schools continues to grow and expand. There are many programs to choose from through the 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 nature camp, a campfire talk, an astronomy safari, or an environmental arts workshop, you will be enchanted by our style of teaching.
Our Canyon Center near Ft. Payne, AL was officially opened February 2009. The Canyon Center adjoins the Little River Canyon National Preserve and near DeSoto State Park. Our Mountain Center near Heflin, AL was officially opened November 2012. The Mountain Center is located near the Talladega National Forest and Cheaha State Park.
