About DEER


Inexpensive alternatives for nature education outside of the classroom in San Luis Obispo are rare. Seeing an unmet need, San Luis Obispo County is providing outdoor education through the DEER Program! Discovering the Environment through Education and Recreation (DEER) Program will offer a hands-on nature experience where participants can commune with nature and gain respect and knowledge of the natural environment.

The DEER Program will provide an opportunity for the youth of our community’s range of diverse cultural and economic populations to enjoy and experience nature in a safe and comfortable setting.  Whether you are a teacher seeking hands-on learning opportunities for your students, or a boy scout parent looking for a great educational camping trip. the DEER Program can tailor to and accommodate your needs.

Learn more about out program and its goals in the About DEER page.
