What is outdoor learning?

Outdoor Learning is a broad term that includes discovery, experimentation, learning about and connecting to the natural world, and engaging in environmental and adventure activities. … Outdoor Learning is more than adventure sports or simply taking what could happen indoors outside. Most importantly, have fun!
