2024 Outdoor Learning Conference

Another year in the books, and what an unforgettable year this was! From dancing aurora to dancing in the woods, to unforgettable learning opportunities, the 2024 Outdoor Learning Conference will go down as an incredibly special year.

As the 2024 Outdoor Learning Conference comes to an end we want to thank all the amazing people that made this year’s Outdoor Learning Conference possible.
