The Kentucky Association for Environmental Education (KAEE) is hosting its annual Outdoor Learning Symposium June 2 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET at East Jessamine Middle School in Nicholasville.

The Outdoor Learning Symposium (OLS) is a free, one-day event designed to inspire and activate K-12 educators and administrators to integrate outdoor learning and environmental education into their existing curriculum and school day routines. The OLS aims to increase administrator support and buy-in for outdoor and environmental education.

Administrator and teacher teams are encouraged to communicate and plan to attend the event together. These teams (who attend and participate) are eligible to apply for a mini-grant up to $250 or a Project WET workshop for up to 10 teachers at their school or district. 

Participants who attend will receive a certificate of completion for professional development credit. EILA credits will be available for administrators. In order to ensure eligibility for the mini-grant or workshop, team members must both attend and participate in most sessions at the symposium.
