Rancho El Chorro Outdoor School is a San Luis Obispo County of Education sponsored program.
Tucked away in the hills above San Luis Obispo is Rancho El Chorro Outdoor School, a natural preserve, a school campus, and an extraordinary learning resource. Here, on 248 protected acres, students literally reach out and touch the natural world and explore their place within it.
Rancho El Chorro Outdoor School provides hands-on learning opportunities for students to study science and ecology in a natural setting. It is outdoor education at its very best and it has been providing it for over 40 years. More than 10,000 school children enjoy and benefit from the Rancho El Chorro Outdoor School facilities and programs and leave with a new sense of wonder of the natural world.
