Outdoor Wilderness Lab

Vision:Engage EVERY D51 learner in unique learning experiences that explore conservation of natural resources in our local environment and empower health and wellness for our learners. 

About OWL:
 The Outdoor Wilderness Lab (OWL) was created in 2012 when a group of teachers from Bookcliff Middle School and officers from Colorado Parks and Wildlife took 33 6th graders on an unforgettable outdoor learning experience. Since then, OWL has continued to innovate and grow so that this year, for the first time, every 6th grader in D51 has the opportunity to attend! 

 OWL creates a unique learning experience that challenges students to engage with academic skills and social and emotional learning in an outdoor setting. At OWL, students form connections with both the people and the natural environment surrounding them, making their learning meaningful and lasting.
