Green School Program

Chase Street

Project Wild/Learning Tree Teacher Workshop 


November 11, 9 am to 5 pm, Walker Hall, Sandy Creek Nature Center. $50.00

Do you have a classroom full of curious citizen scientists ready to be put to work in the schoolyard? Engage them with Project WILD and Learning Tree! This workshop will get you certified to teach these two curriculums and focus on moving the concepts that you already are required to cover with hands on methods that utilize your schoolyard. Participants will get a copy of Project WILD, Aquatic Wild, and Project Learning Tree Curriculums. We will practice using the guides with an emphasis on using the outdoor learning areas available to you. We will also have a variety of partner organizations on hand to introduce you to the free resources available in Athens Clarke County.
