The Environmental Education Program at Southern Oregon University and the Siskiyou Environmental Education Center (SEEC) are proud to offer Natural Science Kits to loan to educators in Jackson, Josephine and Klamath counties. The kits investigate the local ecology of the Klamath-Siskiyou bioregion from birds and mammals to streams and forests. Each kit revolves around student-centered, hands-on activities and contains unique biological specimens for students to explore.
Local educators may check out Natural Science Kits for FREE! Kits are reserved on a first come, first served basis and may be kept by educators for a two-week period, not including transportation time.
The Southern Oregon Education Service District (ESD) courier provides delivery to and from public schools in Jackson, Josephine, and Klamath counties. The ESD will pick up kits from SOU, delivery them to your school’s district office, and then delivery them to your school. If the ESD courier does not serve your school or organization, you can pick up and return kits on campus at Southern Oregon University in Ashland. The same is true if you are outside the three-county area served by our program.
Kits are available during the SOU academic year; roughly October 1st-June 10th. The SEEC office will try its best to accommodate other requests.
