The Environmental Learning Laboratory @ Hands On Park
Hands On Park is an innovative environmental learning laboratory located in the City of Orlando
The park is 15 acres of natural green space with trails and wide open spaces for community events.
Our aim is for people to reconnect with nature, and each other, through volunteering and partnering with other groups and organizations to host events in a natural setting.
We invite individuals, families, schools, corporations, and anyone else interested in the work we are doing to learn more.
Hands On Park's Environmental Learning Laboratory provides opportunities for people to learn, experiment, and grow in both knowledge and respect for the awesome power of nature.
We welcome K-12, religious, social, civic, and any other group/organization to contact us to schedule a learning walk/volunteer service event.
Hands On Orlando is also looking for partners who need an outdoor space to test experimental technology intended to help further green technology. Please reach out to our team for more information about partnerships.
