    Hello and Welcome!
     Only a handful of public schools systems in the US can boast a learning resource like
    the Avon Outdoor Learning Center (OLC).  
    Started back in the 1980's the OLC is a 7 acre gem where students can put classroom information into real world practices...  
    History, Science, Math, Social Studies and Language Arts all come to life, engaging all the senses!
    Last year more than 10,400 students took part in our programs. 
    We offer educational experiences for all ages in our area- please ask about how to utilize our site and check out our calendar
    We need VOLUNTEERS!  If you can spare an hour or two, or ten, please drop a line to olc@avon-schools.org
    Some current needs: extra hands for our 4th grade Pioneer Day programs, trail trimming, invasive plant removal
    Check us out on:  fb INS twt
