Teachers from all backgrounds are encouraged to attend Sharing Nature: An Educator’s Week Workshop, this summer July- 17-22, hosted by the National Audubon Society. This workshop, held at Hog Island Audubon Camp in Muscongus Bay, Main is designed for both science and non-science educators.
Participants will learn practical approaches to environmental education using techniques in art, music, theater and other disciplines. In attendance will be inspiring and experienced instructors who will share experiences and methods that they have found to be most useful.
The workshop will provide hands-on learning with a boat trip to the restored Atlantic Puffin and Tern colony on Eastern Egg Rock, inter-tidal explorations and hiking through Hog Island’s unspoiled spruce-fir forest. During these field trips, you will be exploring citizen science and creating inquiry-based lessons on birds and other topics.
For $20, 4.5 continuing education credits will be available to participants through the University of Southern Maine.
