The Pacific Environmental Education Center is a non-profit, standards-based, residential outdoor science school.  PEEC is located within MacKerricher State Park on the beautiful Mendocino coast of California.  From our site students visit the beach, tide pools, seal rookery, coastal prairie, fresh water lake and whale skeleton.  Off-site, students explore unique sand dunes, and hike through redwood and pygmy forests on the wave-cut terraces of the Jughandle Ecological Staircase Trail.  Our coastal ecology program seeks to instill within students a respect for the natural world.

Welcome to PEEC

When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.
