Mendocino Woodlands Camp Association

The Mendocino Outdoor Science School (MOSS) serves youth ages 8-18 (primarily 5th and 6th grade) with outdoor environmental education. The purpose of school is to create good citizens for the planet through discovery-based learning and community building. The MOSS curriculum follows the California Science Framework and employs learning strategies set out in the Next Generation Science Standards. Field groups enjoy hands-on activities investigating the redwood forest, fresh water stream, rocky shore tide pools, and estuary. The concepts of habitat, adaptation, energy flow, nutrient cycling, and interdependence are highlighted and reinforced in each ecosystem.
