Stepping Outside the Classroom to Learn Lessons for Life

Stop by any trailhead or boat landing on a national forest or grassland and take a moment to ask folks to explain the origins of their love for the outdoors.

For others, getting their hands dirty stirs memories of a favorite teacher’s class garden.
