The Orfalea Foundation is deeply committed to the principles and practices of the Outdoor Classroom Project. It has provided substantial support since 2008 to assist all child care programs in Santa Barbara County in transforming their outdoor environments and programs through training and consultation. The work of this highly successful county-wide project is ongoing.
The Outdoor Classroom Project is also collaborating with the Orfalea Foundation on the Preschool Food & Healthy Habits Initiative (PFI) to address the critical, life-limiting issue of poor eating and inadequate physical activity for young children.
