Friends of Outdoor School


Friends of Outdoor School is dedicated to increasing student access to Oregon Outdoor School programs that contribute to educational development, inspire youth, and promote personal growth.

Bottom Line for Portland

This past year, we have been helping Outdoor School (ODS) programs and sites navigate the pandemic and reimagine ODS for students’ current needs. We have been working with state-level officials to amplify the importance of outdoor education, highlighting how ODS is a solution to the challenges schools face. We continue to advocate for access to ODS for every Oregon student.


The first 125 unique donors 35 & under to donate $10 or more to Friends of Outdoor School will receive an awesome Friends of Outdoor School embroidered patch.

“Friends of Outdoor School carries the passion for Outdoor School in our communities: protecting and promoting this unique and valuable educational program before decision-makers, networking all partners in the program for positive change, and finding innovative funding solutions for participants.” —John Donovan, volunteer, Senior VP of External Affairs and Constituent Relationships, Trillium Family Services
