Environmental Education Programs

Students looking at a skullThe Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge Complex welcomes groups to take part in our environmental education programs. Programs/activities are available by reservation only and can take place at Sacramento, Colusa, Llano Seco, or at your school. Please contact staff if you need special accommodations or to tailor a program for your educational group (college, adults, scouts, etc.).

Bring your Group to the Complex...

Educational activities are offered on-site from late October through February (limited rest of year). Free admission is offered to educational groups. The Complex can have up to 2 staff available to lead activities.

To plan your trip:

  1. Check out our 2014-15 Educational Activities
  2. Submit a Reservation Form (if you don't have Adobe-editing software, please print and fill out the form then return via mail, scan, email or fax).
  3. Review our "Plan Your Visit" information sheet, and print to share with chaperones and parents.
  4. See what core curriculum science state standards are met on the programs (coming soon).

 Helpful Field Trip Tips:

  • November‐February is the best time to view large flocks of waterfowl.
  • Have the students dress for the weather! Most of the activities take place outside. Dressing in layers and having durable footwear is recommended.
  • Carry‐In, Carry‐Out! Help the Complex by bringing your own garbage bags to carry out your lunch trash. Bring separate bags to place your recyclables in.
