Outdoor Learning Experiences supports learning and engagement with the natural environment for all ages. We seek to do this in several ways:
We offer a variety of activities for adults and children which enable them to enjoy being out in nature, such as Forest School, farm walks and tours, educational visits to the farm, and outdoor science lessons.
Research on outdoor learning and environmental education. See the Research page for more details of project and publications of findings.
Work with organisations that seek to promote outdoor learning and engagement with nature, such as Countryside Classroom, Farms for City Children, School Food Matters.
Influencing policy regarding learning in the natural environment, through membership of a strategic research group within Natural England.
Outdoor Learning Experiences is based in Hertfordshire. Frances Harris, founder of Outdoor Learning Experiences, is a Senior Lecturer in Environmental Management at the University of Hertfordshire.
