Mission Statement

The Nevada Outdoor School (NOS) is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization that inspires exploration of the natural world, responsible stewardship of our habitat and dedication to community.

Description

The Nevada Outdoor School is a non-profit organization that fosters people's connections with the plants, animals, and habitats of northern Nevada; deepens their knowledge of the natural world; and inspires in people of all ages a sense of responsibility for their place in nature. In creating this program we have a profound understanding that the primary vehicle by which any given culture perpetuates its basic values is through its educational system. We believe that collaboratively designing and implementing a curriculum, which assigns value to tradition and environmental stewardship, will create a dramatic acceleration and cultural shift towards a responsible land ethic in the mainstream of the population. Lessons taught in the Nevada Outdoor School, encourage students to identify local environmental justice problems while creatively solving them. By encouraging folks to take a closer look at the nature around and providing tools for living a more harmonious lifestyle, we are ultimately changing the future of our world.
