Nature-Based Learning Symposium 2023

August 29 @ 8:00 am - August 30 @ 5:00 pm

Save the Date! More details to come.

This two-day symposium will bring educators and their partners together to experience and learn about nature-based learning through engagement with the environment, relationship-building, discussion, and workshops.

Participants will leave with a better understanding of the benefits of nature-based learning, practical tools for implementing nature based learning, and connections to a network of practice.

We invite you to join us for one or both days, whatever works best for you. Please reach out if you have any questions or want to help us make this happen.


Participants will

  • learn about nature based education as a means of meeting their students’ social emotional needs by connecting them to themselves, their environment, and each other
  • build understanding around how nature based learning can be used to meet educational goals around content and character
  • develop a framework for incorporating nature-based learning into their work with students
  • create a plan of action for implementing nature based learning
