Grow Back Stronger

With the “Grow Back Stronger Solution” children can return to Whiskeytown Environmental School, housed in modern and permanent structures.  The goal can be achieved by Fall of 2023 by using permanent, fire-resistant metal structures allowing for faster on-site construction.

Team partners, Whiskeytown Environmental School Community, the National Park Service, the Shasta County Office of Education, and local engineering firms are coordinating to modernize other site assets such as the dining hall, administration office, and underground utilities.

Thank you so much for letting me come to the wonderful Whiskeytown Environmental school itself.  I had so much fun hiking, learning, and being there at WES camp.  I will never forget my once-in-a-lifetime experience.  One day I hope to see Whiskeytown Enviormental [sic] School and my naturalist, Antalope [sic] Andy, again.
