Hybrid Workshop for Educators This October: Project WILD: Using Your School’s Outdoor Space for Learning

logo

Educators of students in grades K – 4 interested in incorporating nature, wildlife, and science activities into their curriculum are invited to join the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department for a hybrid professional development workshop this October. This Project WILD: Using Your School’s Outdoor Space for Learning seminar is intended for instructors who want to build on a child’s sense of wonder about nature, encouraging them to explore wildlife and the world around them by using an outdoor classroom, schoolyard, or natural area.

 

Once enrolled, participants will be assigned a short pre-workshop homework assignment. Then all participants convene on Thursday October 21, 2021, 4:30 pm – 8:00 pm for hands-on learning at NH Fish & Game Headquarters at 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, NH. Afterwards, participants will have a short post-workshop homework assignment. The in-person portion of the workshop will consist of outdoor work as well as indoor work in a large conference room with space to spread out. Updated Covid protocols will be emailed to participants prior to the meeting. 

 

The cost for the workshop is $25.00 and includes dinner on 10/21. Directions on how to pay will be emailed to participants once they register for the workshop. 

 

All participants will receive their own copy of Project WILD’s K-12 Curriculum Book. 

 

This workshop is made possible, in part, from a generous donation from the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of NH. 

 

The workshop is limited to 20 people. To register for this workshop, visit https://nh-events-web.s3licensing.com/Event/AllEvents?EventTypeID=178&ClassActivity=106
