A movement to restore
outdoor education for
every sixth-grader

We’re excited to share that the legislative campaign to restore outdoor education throughout Oregon has officially launched!
 Oregon Outdoor Education Coalition (OOEC), a partnership between Friends of ODS, the Gray Family Foundation, Metropolitan Group and many others statewide who are committed to creating a strong, cohesive voice for Oregon outdoor education. 

Right now we're focused on securing state funding for a full week of Outdoor School for every Oregon sixth grade student.
