The Outdoor Classroom is held at Oak Grove Park near Hawarden and is usually held on the second Monday in May. An invitation to attend is extended to all elementary schools in Sioux County and to home schooled students. The schools choose whether their fifth or sixth graders attend.  No rain date is scheduled for the Outdoor Classroom because many of the speakers cannot commit to a second day.

Some of the topics presented are soil conservation, wildlife, trees, woodland plants, archery, compassing, geocaching, hunting, water Olympics, and birds. The Outdoor Classroom runs  9:30 a.m. -1:30 p.m. Students are to bring their own lunch.
