Natural Science Kits
Siskiyou Environmental Education Center (SEEC) is proud to offer Natural Science Kits 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. The Southern Oregon Education Service District (ESD) courier provides FREE delivery to and from public schools in Jackson, Josephine and Klamath counties. If the ESD courier does not serve your school or organization, educators can pick up and return kits on campus at Southern Oregon University in Ashland.
