Birch Creek Arts and Ecology Center operates a wilderness campus
located at historic Trillium Farm, a former trout hatchery and homestead nestled deep
in a remote river canyon in the wild eastern Siskiyou Mountains of S.W. Oregon.
At Birch Creek, we practice basic tenets of Ecopsychology:
Immersion in powerful wild landscapes
to connect with Nature and heal our bodies, minds, and spirits,
helping us to become more aware of our gifts and how to share them
while we evolve as planetary citizens of this beautiful blue being of life, our Earth Mother Gaia.
Birch Creek Arts and Ecology Center hosts and
presents various programs and events
with a focus on the Fine and Healing Arts, Ecology and Natural History,
Homesteading and Organic Gardening, Spirituality and Connectedness,
Natural Resource Conservation and Environmental Activism,
and celebrating the opportunity to be human on this beautiful planet Earth.

and from clear-cutting and illegal logging operations since 1979.
To provide academic accreditation through
universities and colleges, Birch Creek Arts and Ecology Center
works in partnership with Dakubetede Environmental Education Programs (DEEP)
