Dome School
The Dome School is a non-profit, tax-exempt private school which has been teaching generations of Takilma youth since 1975 (?). It is a parent cooperative where parental involvement in the education of children is not just an option, but a requirement and a hallowed tradition. The Dome School employs a hands-on, participatory approach which emphasizes, among other things, a respect for and an understanding of the natural world. The Dome School owns and manages the Takilma Community Building, a large community-built structure in the heart of Takilma which not only houses the educational program, but serves as a warm, welcoming venue for a great variety of cultural events which enrich the community while generating operating funds for the school.
The Rangers is a free after school program for all local youth operated by the Dome School. The Rangers provides a variety of age appropriate activities in a safe, supportive environment.
The Hope Mountain Barter Faire
is an annual event which serves as one of the primary fund-raisers for the Dome School. It is a 3-day gathering of local and regional growers, crafts people, entertainers, and fun-lovers. The Faire's focus is upon sharing of products, services, knowledge and wisdom in an alternative, camping setting, fostering community while honoring the earth.

Siskiyou Field Institute
Mission: SFI deepens people’s scientific understanding and intimate connection to the Klamath-Siskiyou bio region by providing educational programs and outdoor experiences to a broad spectrum of the public.
Welcome to the Siskiyou Field Institute, where people come to learn about and explore this amazing bio region, a land of steep mountains, wild rivers and unusual diversity of species and habitats. SFI is the conduit for the region’s leading scientists and naturalists to share their passion and knowledge with the public each year through dynamic field courses and other educational programs.
To foster understanding within the local community, SFI offers many youth and community programs and educational materials free of charge. And if you go to current programs, you will find a (myriad) wide range of offerings tailored to the varied tastes and interests of the public. Some programs are for college credit or professional development; others are geared more toward the curious novice, recreational adventurer, or a family seeking meaningful experiences together. There’s something for everyone!
SFI has also partnered with Southern Oregon University (SOU) and Rogue Community College to bring a dedicated education and research facility to the Illinois Valley in southern Oregon. This long sought after facility will become the permanent home from which SFI offers programs year-round. This exciting partnership will allow students of all ages and levels to experience first hand the rare and pristine landscape they’re surrounded by.
