Demonstration Site Network

Demonstration Site NetworkThe Demonstration Site Network is an activity of the Outdoor Classroom Project. It provides support for participating centers and strives to increase awareness and visibility for the Outdoor Classroom concept. It includes early care and education programs that are dedicated to the OCP’s principles and practices and maintain a certain standard that reflects an ongoing commitment to the Outdoor Classroom.  Demonstration Sites have agreed to host visitors interested in learning more about the Outdoor Classroom.  Recognized Sites, which are also part of the network, commit to maintaining the standard but do not host visitors. Begun in Los Angeles County in 2008, the network is organized geographically, with each region having its own local network organization and steering committee. Currently there are three local networks:
