"The Young Conservationist and Your School Forest" Teacher Professional Development Opportunity
Teachers will be immersed in a 2-day professional development experience which allows them to develop their knowledge of using their school forest for learning, while increasing their knowledge of wildlife and young forest management as high-quality project-based learning (PBL).
Participating teachers will explore wildlife species, habitat development, and future forest improvements, all while immersed in the project-based experience itself--you become the students and the students become the teachers. Participants will also learn how to use technology to guide PBL and inquiry without reliable internet access.
Cost: $50, or $75 if you wish to stay in the shelters on-site
