Welcome to McDowell Environmental Center!
Our program provides an experience that is impossible to find in a classroom. It is a place where students can see and feel exactly what they are being taught. Students are fascinated by a shiny beetle that they were afraid of once. This experience is the essence of McDowell Environmental Center. Our non-profit, educational organization provides outdoor learning experiences for school groups in the forests, canyons and streams of beautiful Camp McDowell.
