HOL in Action Slideshow Video
America’s national forests, parks, wildlife refuges, waterways, and other public lands comprise nearly one-third the area of the United States, and thus offer many unique teaching and learning opportunities. Hands on the Land (HOL) is a national network of field classrooms that connects students, teachers, families, and volunteers to these special places. Within the Hands on the Land community, we collaborate to customize hands-on experiences using natural, historical, and archaeological settings to bring classroom learning to life. HOL is supported by Partners in Resource Education, which represents multiple federal agencies. Today, more than one hundred federal, state, and local sites―reaching thousands of students each year―participate in the HOL network, effectively making it “America’s Largest Classroom.”
