Wildlife

Wildlife workshops and resources are available to K-5 educators and administrators interested in integrating concepts of ecology, forestry, wildlife, and other natural resources into their classroom. Participants will not only gain hands-on experience and knowledge of specific lesson plans, but also will gain added familiarity and confidence with using their facilities’ outdoor spaces to transfer this experiential learning to students.

Food Waste
Food waste resources and workshops aid instructors in teaching their students about the environmental effects of food waste and ways to reduce food waste at home and school. Workshop participants will experience activities from the lessons like building classroom compost bins, taste-testing "ugly" food, and taking a hike to learn how nature is affected by food waste. All lessons presented in the workshop are standards-based with a focus on STEM, and adaptable to different classroom or outdoor settings.
 
Health & Wellness
Health & Wellness resources and workshops aim to provide K-5 educators and administrators with the linkages between the academic and health benefits of connecting children and nature. Participants will gain knowledge on how to incorporate standards based curricula into their classrooms to improve students’ physical activity, nutrition, and mental health by engaging with nature. Our workshops and resources are for both the nature enthusiast and novice. Register now for an opportunity to improve your students’ wellbeing through nature.​
