Utilizing the beautiful resources at 1865 US-90, the SOLC staff strives to educate good stewards of tomorrow’s natural resources.
The SOLC began with the dreams and imagination of Irma Lewis, a physical education teacher with a strong background in outdoor education. Lewis developed and taught an outdoor education course at Seguin High School and saw the positive impact of the program on her students. She believed that such a program, devoted completely to outdoor education, would make a difference in the lives of the young and young at heart. Eight years later Irma’s dream became a reality.
Beginning with an initial donation of 23 acres from local resident Carla Blumberg in 1995, the Seguin Outdoor Learning Center has grown to more than 115 acres. With support from the community, the school district, local businesses, public and private foundations, the Seguin Chamber and a legion of volunteers, the SOLC has provided the citizens of south central Texas with a multitude of recreational and educational opportunities.
After its first two years of business, the SOLC was recognized by the Texas Outdoor Education Association for its impact on local children and students. The SOLC was named the Outstanding Outdoor Education Program in the State of Texas in 1997.
That legacy continues at the SOLC today with quality programs and a beautiful setting. The facility is a jewel where the entire community can enjoy the outdoors.
