Next Steps: Teachers As Naturalists – Flying Wild*
Join Karen Gentry and Lauri Turner March 2, 2018 from 8 AM – 3 PM at the Environmental Center for the Flying Wild teacher training. This training is geared towards 3rd-12th grade teachers who are experienced in leading outdoor activities with their students and want to continue to grow their knowledge about Central Oregon ecosystems. Learn about bird communities and habitat from natural resource experts from Deschutes National Forest. We’ll share techniques for facilitating real-world field investigations that connect to Next Generation Science Standards, and will also have a special focus on incorporating nature journaling into field experiences. Teachers will receive a copy of the Flying Wild curriculum. Teachers are eligible for 1 Graduate credit from OSU-Cascades if they attend 2 out of 3 evening sessions about natural resource topics.
