OutdoorExplore! is a collaboration between San Diego Canyonlands and the San Diego Audubon Society to provide educational and fun access to nature for kids in after-school programs. It provides a place-based, free-form, experiential connection to our natural environment.
The Goals of OutdoorExplore! are to:
- Provide children with more physical activity
- Connect children to natural spaces in their local community
- Inspire children to develop an ethic of stewardship for their neighborhood's natural environment
- Promote the cultivation of a "sense of place"
- Offer children opportunities for fun, imagination, and delight with nature
