This paper examines the role and value of professional learning and organizational capacity building in outdoor science education by investigating several questions analyzing the Better Environmental Education, Teaching, Learning, and Expertise Sharing (BEETLES) Project: (1) Which components of the BEETLES capacity-building model were implemented? (2) What were the perceived impacts of BEETLES materials and resources on program practices, structures, and capacities? (3) What challenges did programs face in using materials and resources?
