Our Learning Outside Project helps New Brunswick’s children re-connect with nature by developing creative ways to integrate nature into the teaching of all subjects through the development of outdoor learning spaces and provision of resources and professional development opportunities.
We believe that all children deserve ample opportunity to learn and explore in nature. Our unique approach is to integrate nature into the school experience of New Brunswick’s children by embedding the use of outdoor classrooms and natural settings into the delivery of the existing curriculum.
We facilitate this by supporting teachers with the provision of professional development opportunities and resources and by encouraging the development of outdoor classrooms and natural spaces on and near school grounds.
This initiative emerged out of our recognition that children today have less opportunity to explore and learn in the natural world than earlier generations.

The Conservation Council of New Brunswick would like to extend a big thank you to our funders and supporters. With your generous support, we are encouraging New Brunswick teachers to get their classes outside by providing opportunities to learn ‘why’, ‘how’ and ‘what’ to teach outside, along with resources and materials to help them link outdoor activities to curriculum outcomes. Also, with your support, we help teachers, principals, parents and community groups transform school grounds by creating or enhancing outdoor learning spaces. Thank you!
