About the Council of OUTDOOR LEARNING

The Council of Outdoor Learning (COOL), an initiative of the Environmental Education Alliance of Georgia (EEA), is a coalition of organizations and individuals who share an interest in the design, development, maintenance, use, and longevity of outdoor classrooms. COOL serves teachers, parents, principals, and community volunteers as a resource link, providing up-to-date training and information to those interested in building and using outdoor classrooms.

Lunch will be donated by local chefs and restaurants and will begin being served bu" et style at noon to registered participants. Our sponsors have generously provided enough food for one serving per person, which should include up to 2 proteins and 2 veggie sides.

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.
