Where can I learn to teach science using the outdoors?

I'm looking for college-level courses that focus on instructing teachers (either preservice teachers in training, or active teachers) how to use the outdoors in their science teaching.

I'm not looking for courses that are purely "outdoor education" that typically involve teambuilding exercises, ropes courses, hiking. Rather, the courses I'm looking for instruct people how to guide students (K-12) in learning science content or skills (like measuring/data collection) when they're outside--during field trips, for example.
Also, I would prefer if these courses were at "well-known" institutions-- aka the name should be somewhat familiar to another person. (I realize this is subjective, but if you are aware of any courses like this, please share!)
It is okay if the course is geared towards graduate-level students. Thanks!
