On this West Virginia Morning, a growing body of research shows that learning outside boosts the mental, physical and social health of students. In Morgantown, one outdoor education program has embraced learning in nature and integrated it into the curriculum at a local elementary school. As part of our occasional series on outdoor education, Brittany Patterson visited Mountain SOL.
Also on today’s show, a longtime state senator from Boone County has announced he is running for the Democratic nomination for governor in 2020. Dave Mistich has more.
