Hands-on Learning, Nearby Nature

IOOBY

Who: 3rd – 5th grade classrooms
What: Four field trip nature immersion throughout the school year

Designed for third through fifth grade students, IOOBY is our award-winning environmental education program. IOOBY gets your students outside with four guided field trips throughout the school year to the same nearby natural space. 

IOOBY brings science lessons to life for your students. Immersion in nature provides opportunities for collaborative problem solving, confidence-building, and creative thinking. 

Led by LandPaths’ qualified and engaging field specialists, your students will each spend about 20 hours a year in nature, experiencing hands-on lessons centered around these themes:

  • Exploration and Discovery
  • Habitats 
  • Watersheds
  • Stewardship 

And we make your job easier by aligning IOOBY lessons with California’s Next Generation Science Standards, cutting down on your classroom planning and prep time. 

Because you are visiting the same place throughout the year, students, teachers, and parent volunteers develop a lasting bond with the land. 
Want to get IOOBY at your school? Contact Youth Program Manager Jamie Nakama at (707) 544-7284, ext. 115 or jamie@landpaths.org.
