Trackers Earth says
For outdoor educators and advocates of the field. Founders and directors of Trackers Earth lead this free program and networking event. Current outdoor education presents some serious challenges:

-Why is it impossible for many outdoor educators to make a living wage?
-What are the dangers of focusing solely on funding?
-What are the limits of free play or inquiry based curriculum?
-Does modern outdoor education truly engage kids?
-Should every kid carry a knife? Are you prepared for risk?
-Will outdoor education always be ÔÇťalternative?" Should it be the norm?

During this night we discuss hard challenges, while looking at unique strategies to build a vision for the field. Taking us far beyond current models our outdoor learning.
