Sierra Nevada Journeys is built on a simple premise: Science education is a necessity, and nature’s classroom is a great place to teach it. Our full mission statement is to deliver innovative outdoor, science-based education programs for youth to develop critical thinking skills and to inspire natural resource stewardship. To achieve this mission, SNJ offers a range of programming to 20,000 students annually in northern Nevada and California:

  • Our credentialed teachers create innovative, engaging curriculum for 1­st-6th graders, teach in the classroom, and lead field expeditions.
  • We host students, teachers, and families at our Outdoor School located at Grizzly Creek Ranch, near Portola, CA, and run an epic summer camp for 8-17 year olds.
  • We train teachers on how to bring engaging STEM lessons to their classrooms as well as how to utilize the outdoor classroom.
  • Through our Family Science/STEM Nights, we involve families to reinforce classroom concepts.

Here at SNJ we believe that outdoor science education is not just a luxury but a necessity. Over 55% of the students we serve are from low-income families, and building capacity to fundraise enables us to help under-served students across our region.

WHERE WE OPERATE

SNJ has three locations: our headquarters in Reno, NV our science campus in Portola, CA, and a satellite office in Sacramento, CA. We serve students along the I-80 corridor from Sacramento, CA to Fallon, NV, with the majority of students clustered around our three locations.
