Cruiser Bikes

March 17, 2016

Check out our class set of bicycles. These provide transportaion for our 5th & 6th grade students to reach sites off campus. We use our 35 Cruiser Bikes to expose students to place based learning opportunities. Some of the core components of our program include outdoor science and writing to develop all of our sense so that we can experience the world around us. Without the bicycles we would be limited in our opportunities to do this. 

Green Run 5k & Eco-Fair

To raise funds, awareness, and sustain our outdoor education programs we are hosting our first annual Green Run 5k & Eco-Fair. You can check out more details on the 5k page.

The Eco Fair will have a number of booths showcasing some of current offerings to expand opportunities to the community beyon just 5th and 6th graders. Our Mission: We believe outdoor education can be a door to connect the schoolyard and community that motivates students intrinsically to show up, ask questions, and experience their education more deeply. This is our way to give back to the community and build student motivation.
