an outdoor

experience

for every student, every year.

Oakland goes outdoors

In partnership with Oakland's own Bay Area Wilderness Training (BAWT), Oakland middle schools have set out to incorporate outdoor education experiences into every program by 2021. This partnership seeks to provide every middle school student with an outdoor learning experience every year, and an overnight wilderness experience at least once during their middle school career. The program will build a strong connection between students’ outdoor educational experiences, and classroom learning of Next Generation Science and social-emotional learning standards.
