Outdoor education has been an Oregon tradition for over 50 years—yet today less than half of all Oregon students have the opportunity to participate in outdoor education programs.
We know that Outdoor School helps kids learn better; develop leadership, critical thinking and social skills; and exposes them to the role of scientific inquiry and applied learning. It’s a proven success and the most economical and effective way to deliver these results.
Which is why the Outdoor School for All Ballot Measure Campaign Committee is working to secure and expand outdoor education throughout the state so that every Oregon student has the knowledge and perspectives to make responsible choices about our natural resources.
Our long-term goal is to integrate placed-based programs into the school system that build upon children's skills in hands-on science and their abilities to be effective stewards and leaders in their communities.
