2017-2018 Take Me Outside for Learning

Are you in or are you out? Take your learning outside for at least one day during the Fall, Winter and Spring Take Me Outside for Learning Weeks.

  • Fall: October 23 – 27, 2017
  • Winter: February 19 – 23, 2018

This event is coordinated by the Kootenay Boundary Chapter of the British Columbia School Superintendents Association (KBBCSSA) through their Environmental Education Initiative. Their goal is to support students’ understanding of their local environment, and empowerment of thoughtful action, through outdoor, experiential, place-based and place-conscious learning.
