Teachers will learn how outdoor learning, in all seasons, provides the learner with:

- Authentic wonderment and opportunities for inquiry
- Self-awareness, resilience and independence
- An immersive curriculum where students are and engaged and empowered
- Increased community connections and environmental stewardship
- The opportunity to be mindful - to be still

We know outdoor learning provides the teachers with:

- A natural setting to honour Indigenous ways of knowing and being
- Opportunities to learn alongside your students
- Increased confidence to move learning outside the traditional classroom setting
- Rich organic opportunities to achieve many curriculum outcomes through an emergent curriculum
- Personalized experiential learning
