Education is an important part of NSCR's Mission and Goals statement. In March of 2005, NSCR began their first program in co-operation with local schools. Archaeologist Gina George of Sonoma State University created an interactive class for both the Greenwood School (Elk K-3) and a fourth grade class of Mendocino Grammar School. Dr. Hillary Adams of CFS lead a discussion about Captain Fletcher and his Inn.

Mendocino Coast Rotary Club provided a grant to NSCR for a digital camera and printer for use in the School Program. The camera was used for the first time at the school tour on June 3, 2005 of the Navarro Mill Company House, located near Captain Fletcher's Inn. The following images were taken by the Sony digital camera.
