Outdoor Discovery Center Backyard Crusades


Daily Inspirations Stay Engaged While You Stay at Home

Today's Daily Inspirations is a local friend who is encouraging you to explore outside on this perfect day!!

Outdoor Discovery Center is one of our favorite partners for programs so we are excited to share their backyard learning crusades! Here's how they describe it:
"You may be asking yourself, what is a crusade? A crusade is leading or taking part in an energetic and organized campaign. So...yes, we are on a crusade! A crusade to help you explore YOUR personal natural world. We know this will be a big adventure and you won't have to travel far at all!

Each week we will have a kick-off video to get you started. Click on the box below and start your backyard crusade! During your crusade you will have a chance to observe, explore, investigate, learn more, and share about our topic while getting a great chance to be outside...All in your own backyard!

Crusade activities are kid designed and kid tested. They require minimal materials which are household items. So...Come on, grab a jacket and join us outside for our Backyard Learning Crusade!"
There are different grade groups for you to pick from. What are you waiting for? Start your crusade here!
