Connecting Children to Nature

Back to School

It's that time again! Kids are waking up early, preparing their backpacks, and getting on school buses all over the nation. With the start of school also comes the start of Field Trips and Outdoors Science School, connecting children to nature and giving them valuable real life lessons that they can apply when they return to their classrooms. At Inside the Outdoors, the hustle and bustle of training staff and getting schools signed up is well under way. During this busy time we work with many teachers who are trying to find funding to help pay for the Field Trips their students need and look forward to all year. Last year Inside the Outdoors was able to give sponsorships to 82,800 students! It's with your help that makes it possible for these students to experience nature in a way they never have before. For some of these students parks and open spaces are just something they have heard about from others, never going there themselves. Some of these students have never seen stars in a night sky before or have ever been to a place where there are no buildings and freeways for miles. This is what Inside the Outdoors offers to students, teachers and their families. This year Inside the Outdoors expects to give sponsorships to thousands more low income students. Your generous donations continue to make this possible. Students eyes will continue to light up with wonder and amazement, teachers will continue to see their students understanding concepts as never before, parents will continue to hear the joy and appreciation for the experiences their children received. It is these experiences that make what we do so meaningful in the lives of these children.
