Learning about watersheds through outdoor experiences can be fun for students and teachers. But it has other benefits for students as well, by connecting them directly to nature and giving them opportunities to explore the natural world around them, beyond the textbook and four walls of the classroom.

This hangout gives you an opportunity to learn about a variety of outdoor education experiences and interact with experts. The Hangout features Richard Louv, outdoor learning expert and author of Last Child in the Woods; Katie Register, Executive Director of Clean Virginia Waterways; and Shawn Ackley, a teacher from Montgomery County Public Schools in Maryland.
