Welcome to the Field Institute of Taos!

We have offered fun, successful outdoor education programs focused on active, hands-on learning experiences since 1996. Based in Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico and utilizing the local outdoor environment, our exciting summer camps and after-school mountain bike sessions are focused on adventure, natural sciences, and local culture. In addition, Team F.I.Taos is a cycling team encompassing all ages and all abilities. All of our programs have a strong mentorship component encouraging youth and adults to share their knowledge and support each other. Our primary goals are to provide experiential, environmental education, promote the learning of outdoor skills, and encourage an active, healthy lifestyle. Please consider joining us for a program or supporting our 501(c)3 organization today!
