Join the Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership's team of experienced outdoor educators for a day of learning how to make outdoor education a regular part of your school year curriculum.

Why incorporate outdoor learning? Outdoor education promotes active learning through direct personal experience and is a fun and exciting way for students to demonstrate critical thinking in a collaborative environment.

Workshop topics include:

  • Using school grounds for inquiry-based science activities.
  • Ready-made science lessons and activities that integrate Common Core State Standards and NGSS.
  • Best practices for leading successful and safe outdoor learning activities.
  • Resources available for loan from the Estuary Partnership.
  • How to overcome real or perceived barriers to bringing learning outdoors.
  • Peer sharing and celebrating what you do already!
