Bedford County Outdoor Education is continuing to develop a Speakers Bureau and a list of other outdoor resources in Bedford County. The Speaker's Bureau would include experts and experienced volunteers willing to share their knowledge of environmental topics with classroom teachers or other interested groups. Teachers or group leaders would need to contact the speakers directly to make arrangements.
