Hands-on Learning,
It's What We Do!

Creek hr 2

21st Century Learning has arrived, and with it come Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Hidden Villa is poised and ready- we are exceptional at engaging a child’s curiosity and exploring the “whys” and “hows” of science. At Hidden Villa students get excited about science. Right now we are working with teachers and other education organizations to repackage our programs to better serve our students and continue doing what we have always done — have fun while exploring the natural world. Read the full Insider's Update.

55 Years Young and Celebrating...with Matching Donations

Hidden Villa was originally the home of Frank and Josephine Duveneck and their family, who over the years made the ranch into a place for environmental discovery, social awareness, and community involvement. Today, Hidden Villa is a nonprofit educational organization that uses its organic farm, wilderness, and community to teach and provide opportunities to learn about the environment and social justice.
