"I have been a teacher for 24 years, and have worked extremely hard to take students to Outdoor School or give them some other multi-day & night outdoor experience every year. These experiences have always bonded my students as a team like nothing else I have done. Attitudes have changed—toward each other, toward me, toward school, and toward the environment. Outdoor school gives students a sense of place. By learning about their natural environment, they come to feel a part of it and to care about it, and we only protect what we care about.”
