Hands on the Land

Hands on the Land

Access the Hands on the Land network for a diverse array of hands-on learning opportunities for teachers and students.
Access The Network

Public lands comprise approximately one-third of the acreage of the US, and one of the best ways to access these resources is through the Hands on the Land (HOL) network of field classrooms and website. Stretching across America from Alaska to Florida, HOL is sponsored by Partners in Resource Education, a collaboration of five Federal agencies, a non-profit foundation, schools, and other private sector partners. This site allows users to share information and learn about their local ecosystems, creative teaching strategies, and much more.
