Integrating Nature into Academics

This is the first of a proposed series of free workshops that provide teachers with hands-on experience connecting academic standards to the natural environment. Whether your school garden is in full bloom or
non-existent (or somewhere in between!) discover how the natural assets your campus currently does offer can help you transform student learning, regardless of the subject.

OCTOBER 19, 2019
9am - 3pm
Dunwoody Nature Center
5343 Roberts Drive
Dunwoody, GA 30338

We're engaging trees as resources in this first workshop. Meet other "outside the box" educators like yourself and learn from arborists and naturalists who will help you discover how a tree on your school campus can become a valuable teaching tool, bringing nature into your classrrom (and increase your confidence in taking kids outside!)

Workshop includes a FREE LUNCH sponsored by the Upper Ocmulgee River Resources Development & Conservation (UORRC&D). Vegetarian options are included; for additional dietary concerns, please let us know when registering.

Some sessions will be conducted outside (weather permitting), so please wear comfortable walking shoes appropriate for a nature trail.  Physical activity level is considered light and comfortable for most participants; however, some sessions may not be ADA accessible. If that is a concern, please advise upon registration and organizers will make every effort to accommodate and keep the activity feeling inclusive.

Future workshops dates are TBD.

and any dietary requests
Thank you!
