Our Place Summer School

Type: Hiking, Nature


Biocitizen LA gets your child “off the screen and into the green”!

Biocitizen LA – School of Field Environmental Philosophy  – Our Place Summer School 2017 June-August

Our Place Summer School is designed to “unplug” your child by bringing them into direct contact with “Our Place” , the natural and urban environment of the Los Angeles River Basin Biome. We provide experiential learning for ages 6-14, via Field Environmental Philosophy (FEP). FEP is simply the practice of inquiry based learning while we walk!

Our weekly sessions consist of five, six-hour days in which we roam multiple outdoor classrooms all over LA; on a treasure hunt in pursuit of natural and cultural signs and stories. These activities are fun and they’re designed to increase student’s perceptual abilities; stimulate their critical thinking skills; inspire their creative imaginations, and counteract “nature deficit disorder.” Through active physical and mental engagement with “our place,” they gain a deep & lasting appreciation of LA—and of themselves.

**This summer we are happy to announce that will be learning about tree care with TreePeople and hope to be kayaking on the LA River!
