In an effort to increase the ecological literacy of staff who facilitate Outdoor and Environmental Education programs, the author proposes the development of an integrated training model. By utilizing challenge course initiatives framed with a curriculum of environmental concepts, the training aims to develop participant's sense of place through an increase in ecological literacy.
This document will serve as a manual for a staff training program model. Specifically, the model focuses on developing ecological literacy using an integrated approach with traditional challenge course low elements with an interwoven theme of sense of place development.
