The first gathering of Oban and Lorn Little Owls met at sunny Ganavan on Monday 30th May at 4pm. OWLS (Outdoor and Woodland Learning Scotland) is a national group, formed from the Forest Education Initiative and promotes outdoor learning. At our gathering we shared ideas, tried out some new maths and talking and listening activities and of course had a brew on the Kelly kettle.
The next gathering will be at Dunstaffnage on Wednesday 7th September. Anyone with an interest in outdoor learning is welcome. We will discuss what people would like to get from the group, whether it is funding, resources, training opportunities or sharing good practice. The next meeting will also have a theme of science outdoors. If you have any ideas to share then please bring them along. Sign up for the next meeting with firstname.lastname@example.org or to have your name put on our mailing list.
