A priority of the project is to support learning on the land. By visiting moving the ‘classroom’ to beaches and forests and tailoring the teachings to location, the power of place-based learning is experienced. Students standing near a stream and learning about water quality can begin to understand the direct impact of water pollution, for example. To this end, we helped facilitate several outings over the last two years to natural spaces with youth to learn about relevant subjects such as science, history, and culture.
