Meet some past students of the Field Studies Program at College of the Canyons



Real field study, real nature, real experience, and real fun. Beats anything learned through a book.

Student Lyz

I really enjoyed going to Camp Tahquitz and doing the field studies for Biology 106. I learned a lot those two weekends and I would really love to go again. I was able to focus more in a natural environment and it was an even better experience to be able to learn about Biology in nature. Lyz

Student Jennifer


I enjoyed participating in the field studies program for many reasons. It is a great hands on experience. Instead of just seeing pictures of plants or insects we got to catch them, or pick them, and classify them. It is as if you are a real scientist doing experiments to learn more for yourself. It makes learning a lot more fun. You also meet a lot of new people and have the chance to make new friends.  Jennifer

Student Sandy



I learned more in the field than through all the books and pictures of being indoors can provide.  Nature--the best classroom.  Sandy

Student Justin



Before the hands on learning I experienced in my BIOSCI 106 class this semester I thought I would never find Biology exciting. The time we spent in the mountains in the Bigbear area has changed all that. I love Biology and will be definitely taking all the field study classes that fit into my major.  Justin
