Donate to the Recycle Store at OLS!

The Outdoor Learning Symposium is excited to have the Recycle Store open for donations.  Clean out your closets and cabinets of teaching materials past and bring them to the conference.  There will be two tables set up for you to drop off these materials.  We are asking that if you shop at the recycle store that you make a donation to EEA.  See you in November!
