Outdoors Victoria (OV) is the peak body for all Outdoor activities in Victoria. We exist to support the Outdoors Community, to advocate the benefits of outdoor activity to the broader community. Our purpose is to build a valued and sustainable outdoor sector for the benefit of the community and natural environment by enhancing, connecting, and advocating on behalf of outdoor education, outdoor recreation, outdoor therapy and nature based tourism. The Nature Stewards program aims to promote environmental literacy and stewardship of nature through discovery, action, and ongoing learning. The 10-week program directly supports participants to connect with nature and other like-minded people, build confidence to get active for nature at home and through local volunteering, generating many benefits for the wider community and the environment.
