Join hundreds of community leaders, entrepreneurs and fellow park lovers to celebrate The Parklands Outdoor Classroom, Louisville’s newest outdoor STEAM-based education program. The Parklands Outdoor Classroom has delivered nearly 75,000 outdoor education experiences to children and adults since 2013, enhancing scientific literacy throughout the greater Louisville community. 


The core purpose of the Outdoor Classroom at The Parklands is to teach science and natural history education through dynamic experiences in the field that stimulate curiosity, critical thinking and discovery for children, adults and families - all resulting in an enhancement to scientific literacy in our community. We envision a future in which all people view themselves as life-long learners, and share a connection to and appreciation for the natural world, their community and each other. 


1,000 business professionals, civic leaders, and entrepreneurs from across the Louisville Metro Area, with over 100 companies represented. This event is a great way to recognize employees and entertain clients and is perfect for local networking. The event begins with time to network, followed by a special program highlighting The Parklands Outdoor Classroom while lunch is served.

We hope to see you there!
