Inside the Outdoors programs take lessons from the classroom and create fun, unforgettable

hands-on experiences about nature. These are powerful moments that leave children with a lifelong enthusiasm for the environment.










​Students move out of the classroom and into nature for real-life learning. Scientific concepts are explored through hands-on activities in the classroom. ​Building Environmental Stewards for Tomorrow
Inside the Outdoors is a unique and hands-on environmental education program administered by the Orange County Department of Education.

Our mission is to empower students, teachers, parents, and the community to explore natural areas and expand their knowledge, understanding, and stewardship of the environment. The curriculum created for Inside the Outdoors programs is aligned with California Science and Social Science standards and allows students to interact with these concepts in a real world setting.
