The program includes activities and resources from a wide breadth of sources including some of the National Environmental Education Curriculums (Project WILD, Wild AQUATIC, Project WET and FLYING Wild), and the Leopold Education Project with are activities based around Aldo Leopold’s famous book, A Sand County Almanac. We will cover New Games, a sampling of Group Challenge activities, and a variety of field-based outdoor explorations to support learning (and teaching) in an outdoor setting. Time is also set aside in our schedule for guest presenters to share their expertise.

Each day will run from 9am-5pm and DOAS will provide light breakfast fare, lunch, snack and beverages each day, along with any other materials for participants.
