DeLuz Ecology Center

Welcome to the De Luz Schoolhouse, currently named the De Luz Ecology Center. The De Luz Schoolhouse was built in 1927. It was used until 1968 to educate the children from the De Luz valley. They attended school from first grade through eighth grade at this site. For further education, the children attended Fallbrook schools. 

Currently, this facility, and the 121 acres surrounding it, are owned by the Fallbrook Union Elementary School District. All third and fifth grade classes in the district visit the center. The third graders participate in a two day program: Old Schoolhouse / Living History and Luiseno / Native American studies. 

The fifth graders participate in a four day program: environmental studies which include various hikes, gold panning, aquatic insect hunting, owl pellet dissection, and a variety of other environmental education related activities.
