I lived in Asheville, NC for approximately 10 years and this model of education is such a perfect fit for this community. This is a great article providing research-based evidence behind the benefits of learning outdoors for all students regardless of the community, age or ability. It is a dream of mine to expand to school age in Wellsboro (some day)!!!
