An educator workshop will be hosted by the National Historic Trails Center for educators, volunteers, and parents who value outdoor education.

Join the hands-on two day workshop August 13th and 14th from 9-5 each day.

On Aug. 13, Digital Bridge to Nature will be presented by Watchable Wildlife, Inc. Participants will learn how to use digital cameras as a tool to encourage students’ exploration of the outdoors. Photography experts will prepare participants to utilize photographic exploration as a means to teach core curriculum.

 

Project Wild and Project Learning Tree training will begin the afternoon of Aug. 13 and continue through Aug. 14. The Project Wild K-12 curriculum focuses on wildlife and habitat, and the Project Learning Tree activities are designed to help young people learn HOW to think, not WHAT to think, about complex environmental issues. A special Wyoming specific supplement will be offered at the training.

 

Participants may choose one or both programs. The cost is $40 and includes several curriculum guides, activity materials, and snacks. Professional Teaching Standards Board and university credit are available for an additional cost with participation in the full two-day workshop. For information and to register, contact Stacey Moore at samoore@blm.gov or call (307) 261-7787. Space is limited.
