Nature Workshop

This course will: • Provide opportunities for teachers to learn how nature can benefit their students, and themselves • Introduce the importance of outdoor learning and activities, as well as discussions about how to incorporate nature into classroom instruction • Give participants a chance to experience firsthand the benefits of spending time in nature with outside activities throughout the day.

The Nature Workshop fee is $150 per person.
