Outdoor Learning Webinar: Creating Outdoor Spaces: The Infrastructure of Living Schoolyard

May 11 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


This is the third in a series of 4 webinars.

Introducing Outdoor Learning: a four-part webinar series, with appearances from the US Department of Education and in collaboration with a consortium of leading national organizations, including Big Green, Ecorise, Green Schoolyards America, Out Teach, and FreshFarm Foodprints.

The US Department of Education supports the use of outside facilities to enrich the educational experience and support the mental and physical health of students. Federal ESSER Funds made available through the American Rescue Plan Act offer a great opportunity to invest in quality outdoor education infrastructure, training, staff and other resources.

This 4-part webinar series will offer clear and direct guidance for why and how your district can better invest in outdoor education using these resources. In each session a panel of expert speakers and school, district, and state level practitioners will present data and experiences to support you to take action now to build out the supports needed to get more students learning outside more of the time.

Across all sessions information will be shared to center equity and support funding strategies as well as allow time for questions and discussion. Educational leaders at the state, district and school levels are encouraged to attend.
