Friends of Outdoor School is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the Outdoor School experience for every Oregon student. Through community partnerships and events like Photo of the Year, the Friends help to raise awareness about the importance of outdoor education. This is of great consequence here in Oregon, where the natural environment is one of our greatest assets, yet financial constraints continue to limit the breadth and scope of the Outdoor School program. In addition to interviewing two educators who have worked with the program, we felt it was important to also travel out to Outdoor School for a day in order to show what the program is really about: the students themselves and real-world learning.
