25th Birthday Picnic August 5th!

In 1998, Great Basin Outdoor School was titled as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. This year, we are celebrating the successes that Great Basin Outdoor School has made. We would especially like to thank our supporters for helping us throughout all of these years. Because of you, we are able to connect thousands of children with nature and science.

Come join us and celebrate!

As a 25th birthday gift, consider donating $25 to help support programs for kids and families. With this donation, we will give you 5 raffle tickets to increase your chance of winning cool raffle prizes!

If you are unable to join us for our birthday picnic but still want to show you care about connecting kids with nature and science, here's a link to our giving page.
