Beyond the Classroom

UC Davis Extension’s personal enrichment courses let you go beyond the classroom to explore your passion. Travel into the Sierra Nevada for a breathtaking horsepacking trek. Track mustangs in the backcountry or learn horsepacking and veterinary care in the wilderness. Experienced instructors provide the kind of guidance and inspiration that make learning a pleasure. You can also learn about the diversity of birds in Northern California or how to identify native plants, and more, with one of our Natural Resources courses. We hope you enjoy your experience!
