The Outdoor Learning Center

Nothing Can Stop Us...

Imagine a place where play becomes educational and where children and adults with autism can interact with nature. The Outdoor Learning Center will provide a journey of discovery and new experiences for everyone at Faison.  The curriculum is being designed to support the development of students and adults of all ages by incorporating the natural world into an exciting learning adventure. With your help, we will make the Outdoor Learning Center a reality.  There will be multiple activity stations that encourage dynamic motor activity, and special features like a water flow system and splash tables to support our science-based curriculum of exploration and discovery. The whole environment will be landscaped with birch trees, shrubs and natural pathways to enhance the natural appearance, and connect it to The Faison Center campus.

Help us meet our goal of $100,000 to create this engaging, new environment for our students. Every dollar raised through the campaign will be matched by a generous, anonymous donor.
