Outdoor Education a Great Solution For Distance Learning

“If districts are looking for sustainable improvements to support teaching, learning, and engagement that live beyond this tumultuous moment, outdoor learning is the answer.”

“The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are based on the premise that the purpose of learning science is to help students understand the natural world, solve problems, improve their lives and communities, and make the world a better place.”

Ventura Land Trust

MISSION AND VISION

The mission of Ventura Land Trust is to permanently protect the land, water, wildlife and scenic beauty of the Ventura region for current and future generations.

Ventura Land Trust (VLT), a community-based nonprofit organization, believes that preserving open space and providing public access enhances the economy, quality of life, and public well-being of Ventura and surrounding communities. With local partners, VLT works to protect the natural beauty of our area. VLT builds trails, restores habitat, plants trees, and cleans up our rivers. 

Ventura Land Trust envisions a Ventura with more trails, more hiking, more biking, and more opportunity to enjoy natural areas. VLT envisions more preserved open space that balances the protection of wildlife and the environment. Working with willing landowners, land is either protected via acquisition or through a land conservation agreement.

Working together, we can improve the educational outcomes for all Ventura County students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
