Wednesday, August 2, 2017 -- GOCO

Flash back six months. There I was, the brand new intern wandering the halls of my new office building. I had just gotten hired to help with the Schools and Outdoor Learning Environments (SOLE) program, a beautiful and rewarding piece of the CPW Education Department. Put simply, my primary job was to get 4th graders and their families outside. The SOLE program reaches thousands of students throughout the state, providing them with field trips, educational programming, and fun events called Family Nature Nights.
