Klamath Outdoor Science School

Klamath Outdoor Science School provides youth with a unique experience in natural settings throughout the Southern Oregon region. These programs inspire learning through exploration, discovery and inquiry while enhancing appreciation for the natural resources of the region. KOSS has a permanent site located about 45 miles north of Klamath Falls in the Sun Pass State Forest, which is managed by the Oregon Department of Forestry. KOSS offers programs at other sites along the coast, in the Rogue Valley and in the desert regions to the east. While at KOSS, students learn forest science and an appreciation for a forest that is well-managed for multiple uses. Curriculum can be provided to educators before and after their stay at KOSS to further enhance learning. Teachers may also borrow, at no charge, classroom education kits and request a visit from one of the school’s naturalists.
