Environmental Studies Program, ESP

The Friends of Sutter's Fort is pleased to sponsor the Environmental Studies Program (ESP) at Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park. This is a very special program that allows students to spend 8 hours (8am-4pm) and portray 1840’s characters and partake in period activities, such as carpentry, baking and rope-making.

This Environmental Studies Program is available to public, private and home school groups. This program is available to middle school and high school students, in addition to those in elementary school. The Environmental Studies Program is limited to a maximum of 80 student participants.
