education outdoors

Our school has become intrigued with the issues addressed in Richard Louv's=
book, Last Child in the Woods. They aren't precisely issues of outdoor ed=
ucation (ropes courses and the like) or environmental education-both of whi=
ch are certainly valuable-but more of simply educating children in the outd=
oors: making sure that young people have opportunities to connect with natu=
re in an age when such opportunities are dwindling.

Are ISED-L readers familiar with any programs currently in place that speak=
to these concerns?

Thank you,
Gregg W. Goldberg
Director of Studies
The Roeper School
