Inspiring the Next Generation of Nature Enthusiasts

Dear Friend of Wildlife,

Please join the National Wildlife Federation as we discuss the broad appeal of Oregon’s visionary Outdoor School for All ballot initiative.

The conversation will focus on efforts to equip today’s children with knowledge and concern for wildlife and wild places amidst the current political uncertainty, and how programs like Outdoor School and the National Wildlife Federation’s Eco-Schools USA are working to affect positive change at both the local and national levels.

The evening will conclude with rooftop cocktails and hors d’oeuvres overlooking Portland’s scenic Pearl District.
