Girls Outside Tuesdays

Outside nature fun just for girls in grades 2 to 5


Come enjoy some outdoor time with Everyone Outside! At Girls Outside, we enjoy connecting with the natural world around us as nature detectives, scientists and artists. This fall we will explore the woods, build shelters, play games, create art and use viewing scopes to examine creatures. To see Girls Outside in action click here or here to view an EO blog. Students from all elementary schools and home-schooled students welcome!
