Outdoor education is an adventure
Engaging youth in outdoor education is an opportunity for them to explore our natural world. Moving the classroom outside helps create experiences for students where they learn to appreciate, respect and enjoy nature by developing a relationship with the environment. By learning about sustainable conservation practices, they will see how a healthy environment benefits them and start to learn how to protect and preserve our valuable natural resources.
