Environmental Living Program (ELP)
Friends of Sutter's Fort is proud to sponsor the Environmental Living Program (ELP) at Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park. This popular program allows students to spend 24 hours (including overnight!) at Sutter’s Fort. While here, they portray 1840’s characters and partake in period activities, such as carpentry, baking and candle-making.
The ELP program is available to public, private and home school groups. However, the students participating are required to be primarily elementary school students. The Environmental Living Program is also limited to a maximum of 100 student participants.
If you are interested in bringing a group of middle or high school students, please look into our Environmental Studies Program (ESP).
