The Rancho El Chorro Outdoor School in San Luis Obispo recently had their official opening. District Governor, Sandi Schwartz was there to participate in the ribbon cutting event! The school provides hands-on learning opportunities for students to study science and ecology in a natural setting. The school has been providing outdoor education to students for over 40 years and more than 250,000 school children have participated in the school’s residential, summer, and day programs.
For many years, the Rotary Clubs in San Luis Obispo have conducted service projects at the school to help maintain and improve this valuable community resource. On January 27, 2018, the Rotary Club of San Luis Obispo continued our commitment to the school by providing much needed maintenance to the school’s BBQ area. The previous spring, all three Rotary Clubs in San Luis Obispo partnered to rebuild the amphitheater stage at the school, doubling the size of the old one.
