Free Nature Education Workshop for Teachers

Oregon Community Trees President Rick Zenn will lead a free three-session workshop for teachers to learn how to make the most of nature field trips. Rick is a Senior Fellow at the World Forestry Center.

The dates of the workshop are Oct 31, Nov 7 and Nov 13, 2009. Learning Outside the Classroom: Leadership for Successful Fieldtrips is an in-depth 3 day workshop where K-5 educators will discover the power of field trips. This unique 3-session, community-based course will combine the best environmental education practices and learning strategies using activities from Project Learning Tree with the power of planning, managing, and leading an effective, curriculum-driven field trip program for students. Day-long sessions will be held-on site in the World Forestry Center Discovery Museum in Portland. It is expected that registered participants will attend all 3 sessions as they are designed and constructed to build in content and community. OSU Graduate Credit and Substitute Reimbursement is available for this workshop.

The program is sponsored by the Oregon State University College of Forestry's Oregon Natural Resource Education Program.
