Oregon Outdoor School News

Oregon Outdoor Education Coalition

The Oregon Outdoor Education Coalition is holding regional discussions to hear what Oregonians think about Outdoor School.  Oregon’s outdoor school programs have a rich history dating back to the late 1950s, but today less than half of Oregon students get to participate in the program. The regional gatherings are an opportunity to help shape education in Oregon by telling us what you think Outdoor School should look like moving forward.

The following gatherings are being held in January:

  • Wednesday, Jan 21, 6-8 pm, Metro Council Chamber and Annex, Portland Anyone from the state can teleconference into the Portland gathering.
  • Saturday, Jan 24, 1-3 pm, Eugene, University of Oregon HEDCO Education Building, Room 176 (1655 Alder Street)

Registration Information > >

The Oregon Outdoor Education Coalition is a broad, diverse and bipartisan statewide group consisting of educators, business people, and tribal and community leaders collaborating to secure funding for Outdoor School for all Oregon students.  Our long-term vision is to ensure that every Oregon student has the knowledge and perspectives to make responsible choices about Oregon’s nature and natural resources.
