Outdoor Classroom Blueprint and Teacher Workshops:
Nature Explorer is a program offered by Dimensions Educational Research Foundation, which collaborates with Arbor Day Foundation. Their mission is to inspire children, families, and educators to connect more deeply with the world around them. The foundation provides research based design consultants, educator workshops, and hands-on resources to elementary schools with the interest of helping children connect more with nature in their daily learning.
Alliance funded the initial blueprint drawing of how the LBES Outdoor Classroom space could be designed, which included workshops for teachers on how to effectively implement and utilize the space.
