Field trip to Los Encinos State Historic Park
Los Encinos State Historic Park was once the hub of Rancho El Encino. Located in the San Fernando Valley, this rancho includes the original eight-room de la Ossa Adobe, the two-story limestone Garnier building, a blacksmith shop, a natural spring, and a pond. The natural spring served as a year-round water source for the ancient village of Siutcanga and its residents who were known as the Chumash, Tongva, and Tataviam people. These native residents were later called "Fernande├▒os". Today the property contains exhibits pertinent to the agricultural ventures of Rancho El Encino's various owners, including Mission Indian, Mexican Californio, French, and French Basque families.

Guided tours of the De La Ossa adobe are offered Wednesday through Sunday by appointment. The adobe is also open for self-guided tours depending on staff. Tours should be booked ahead of time to ensure the availability of staff.

Interpretive school group programs aligned to California Education Content Standards are offered.
