Leadership Institute
National Conference

Because of the new Covid variants and the recommended CDC guidelines, we are unable to host our in-person Leadership Institute this year.

We will be offering a virtual event during this year’s original dates of July 25-28, 2021, so stay tuned for more information.


Give yourself the gift of new ideas, connections and inspirations at the Nature Explore/Outdoor Classroom Project Leadership Institute: Embracing the Gifts of Nature for Ourselves, Our Children and Our World. Our gift to you is a great mix of motivational speakers; discussion groups with peers; nature-based experiences; and inspiring connections. You’ll come away with new ways to keep yourself and your work fresh, enjoyable and effective. Join with our ever-growing network of committed and enthusiastic advocates and learn from programs who are celebrating ten years in our network. Treat yourself to this time to rejuvenate your professional journey.
