the experience of learning

Peer-led learning, observation, reflection, and collaboration are all part of our Direct Involvement Recreation Teaching, D.I.R.T., philosophy.

Direct Involvement Recreation Teaching

To change our urban climate we must live in that climate-and be the change we wish to see. These parks are an effort to make that change & get back to DIRT. Direct Involvement Recreation Teachings focus is to learn by doing and to grow. 

The natural side effect of the activities DIRT is involved in tends to be twofold – strengthening our community through participation, and beautifying our surroundings.  These acts are changing our climate- we are being the change we wish to see!
