Educational Programs

To address the MFS Mission of “facilitating environmental education in the Northern Great Basin”, MFS offers educational programs as well as partnering with others to support programs they bring to MFS. We continue to look for opportunities to enrich the experience of visitors to the High Desert. Please join us as a participant or a provider.
