At Foothill Horizons, the natural world provides an exceptional setting for outdoor education. A 143-acre campus is located within an oak woodland that includes six species of oaks, large pines, and stands of beautiful manzanita. A perennial creek adds a cool, riparian zone for study. In the spring, wild flowers abound. Gray foxes, squirrels, raccoons, and mule deer are abundant. Sixteen acorn pounding-stone sites on the school property offer evidence that the Me-wuk people once stood on the land where the students now study that culture.
