Oregon's working lands, wild places, open spaces, communities, people, and businesses all depend on each other. The next generation needs the skills, knowledge, attitudes, motivations, and commitment to work individually and collectively to ensure Oregon continues to have a vibrant future. We believe environmental education is the key to that future. We support our teachers, administrators, resource professionals, nature centers, environmental educators, and volunteers who are in the trenches - getting kids & adults outside, teaching teachers, training staff, working with schools, working with families, teaching adults, doing environmental education - everything and anything that cultivates environmental literacy. We do this through leadership development, advocacy, and state-wide conference. We are your resource in working with others around environmental education.
Our hard-earned Outdoor School statewide funding is at risk, we're asking for your support to ensure funding isn't stripped:
Starting February 10 through May 3, the Legislative Joint Ways & Means budget committee is touring seven cities to hear citizens' priorities for the biennial budget. Please show up and tell them why Outdoor School is important for you and your community.
We encourage you to learn more about how to use the environment when teaching STEM. Watch our E-STEM prezi presentation to discover more.Read More
