The research reported to gatherings sponsored by the Coalition for Education in the Outdoors has had relatively little connection with school-based outdoor education. In this paper, I will explore the potentially fruitful interface between education in the outdoors and the schools. The exploration is influenced by the uncertainty of our times, and I have organized this report to reflect two views. One is that the social ferment of the mid-1990s is normal and that we can continue to conduct research in the way that Kuhn (1974) characterized as "normal science." The second view is that the social fabric of the West may be undergoing revolutionary, paradigmatic changes which are hard to recognize from inside and that to carry on as usual may be futile.
