Outdoor School Receives Funding


67% of Oregon voters said yes to our measure, allocating 4% of our state’s lottery funds so every 5th or 6th grader could get a full week of outdoor education. Thanks to you Outdoor School received funding.

OSU Extension is working to implement Outdoor School for All with partners across the state.

The Gray Family Foundation is also a key funding organization advancing environmental education across the state. We are proud to have them as partners in this effort. They support both Oregon's Environmental Literacy Program implementation and Outdoor School for All.
