Nearly 7,000 people visit Slide Ranch each year for farm-based environmental education programs.  The Slide Ranch School and Community Group Program provides day and overnight programs for 4,000 participants, pre-school through high school, representing more than 80 schools and community organizations.  For ten weeks in June, July and August, close to 600 youth ages five to thirteen, and teenaged junior camp counselors attend summer camp.  2,500 to 3,000 people participate in Slide Ranch Family Programs each year and learn about environmental science, land and animal stewardship, beekeeping, farm to table cooking and sustainable gardening through overnight camp outs, family farm days, educational workshops, and special events and celebrations.  The Teacher-in-Residence program develops a group of seven promising young educators each year (plus three summer teachers), preparing them for life-long careers in the fields of farming, education and environmental service.  More than 200 volunteers perform service projects each year, and we welcome more than 1,000 additional drop-in visitors who come to visit our gardens, animals, trails, and beaches.

The following schools and community groups have participated in the Slide Ranch School and Community Group Programs.  More than half of the group each year receive financial aid from Slide Ranch in order to participate in programming.
