The Get Outside! Program focuses on equitable and inclusive access to environmental and outdoor education. The Lussier Family Heritage Center strives to provide nature based programming to youth who may not have access to our parks, natural areas, or environmental education on a regular basis.  Through this program we build long-term relationships with youth through our community center partners. We strives to create a safe space youth of all backgrounds and abilities to explore natural resources through hands-on learning. A main goal of our programming is to introduce youth to local Dane County Parks through positive experiences. Some of our activities include outdoor exploration, habitat and wildlife identification, sustainability, pollution and runoff education, environmental processes, and exposure to recreation opportunities (i.e. snowshoeing, hiking, biking, disc golf, and fishing).
