Saturday, June 9 at 9:00am - Sunday, June 10 at 3:00pm
Join us for this two-day Citizen Science teacher workshop focused on birds and hosted by Cornell Ornithologists and Pepperwood Preserve.
Ideal for 3th-8th grade classroom teachers, this fun, hands-on training will help you build your skills both in and out of the classroom. Learn about implementing citizen science in your classroom, teaching outdoors, bird migration and reproduction, and gardening to enhance California bird habitats.
You'll also develop the ideas, skills, and confidence to use citizen science and bird ecology as teaching tools in your own school garden! Educators who complete the workshop will receive a copy of the Habitat Connections curriculum kit and Alaska Fertilizer thanks to our sponsors.
The weekend will be spent both in a classroom setting at the Dwight Center for Conservation Science and in the field observing wildlife and hiking. Dinner on Saturday and breakfast and lunch on Sunday are included.
