Environmental educator workshops

Workshops on nature and water resources for teachers and early-childhood educators.

Little Explorers is an informative and hands-on session about the importance of nature on child development and how it can easily be included into our busy lives. It's all about balancing screen time and nature time.

This presentation is for adult caregivers, parents and early childhood educators. Length is 1.5 hours with an outdoor component.

Project WET: Water Education for Teachers

Project WET is a curriculum and activity guide for teachers targeting all school grades. It is about water resources education for children and youth through school and community educators.

Training workshops are available to educators at all levels, formal and non-formal, on diverse water topics so that those educators can reach children with objective, experiential, science-based water education. There is a cost for the comprehensive, 592-page guide.
