Environmental Living Program
Thank you for your interest in the Environmental Living Program (ELP) at Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park. This is a very special program that allows students to spend 24 hours (including overnight) at Sutter’s Fort. While here, they will portray 1840’s characters and partake in period activities, such as carpentry, baking and candle-making.
This program is available to public, private and home school groups. However, the students participating are required to be primarily elementary school students. If you are interested in bringing a group of middle or high school students, please look into our Environmental Studies Program (ESP). The Environmental Living Program is also limited to a maximum of 100 student participants.
For more information, such as the application process, cost and available dates, please look at the ELP Program Summary. To apply, please fill out and send in the ELP Application. If you have any questions, please contact the ELP Coordinator at Adrian.Hough@parks.ca.gov or (916) 323-7627. Thank you!
