Muddy Sneakers is an education non-profit that partners with public schools to supplement classroom science instruction with experiential, inquiry-based outdoor learning. Committed to measurable results, the organization provides fifth grade students multiple field experiences throughout the school year. Students develop a connection with nature, become more physically active, gain in self-confidence, and increase science aptitude. Programs take place on nearby conserved lands where students are instructed in small groups by highly skilled outdoor educators.
