Who We Are
Founded by a long-time biology teacher turned outdoor educator, Ecological Classroom Outdoors is based in Orlando, Florida, and exists to get upper elementary, middle and high school students learning outside of the traditional classroom space. We are passionate about creating environmental stewards who will protect Florida’s water supply within our aquifer, lakes, rivers, wetlands, estuaries and oceans.
Participants are immersed in a variety of exciting activities, such as guided nature walks; hands-on discovery through field collection; and identification of indicator species and water quality analysis at local city, county and state park facilities across Orange and Seminole Counties.
To engage the senses and actively apply classroom learning to real world settings; to increase science literacy through STEM activities; and to improve environmental stewardship of Florida’s water and its surrounding ecosystems.
