Outdoor Classroom registration for the 2021-22 school year is now open!
During their day in the Outdoor Classroom, students will receive an overview of the Canyon Lake Dam and GBRA Hydroelectric Power Plant; participate in a variety of educational stations and activities selected by their teacher and enjoy lunch in the beauty of nature. Students will be provided with a clipboard, pencil, water and student workbook when they arrive at the Gorge. The student workbook reinforces what they learn and can be taken back to the classroom for review and even given a grade. Students must bring their own lunch. All participants will be required to complete a liability waiver prior to their Outdoor Classroom experience.
A GBRA Gorge Program Assistant is available to visit students on campus prior to their Gorge visit and give a 30-minute presentation with an overview of the creation of the Canyon Lake Gorge and an idea of what to expect during their Outdoor Classroom experience.
