Teacher Field School
New this year, we will be offering periodic Teacher Field Schools that any educator can attend! These are perfect for educators considering doing a self-guided field trip, or just looking for new ideas for hikes and outdoor experiences. As always, these are free, though all teachers participating will receive a backpack with supplies (thanks to grant funding) to assist with your outdoor adventure, whether it be at a park or at school.
Winter in the Park: Jan. 8, 4 to 5:30 PM, Cox Arboretum MetroPark's Mead Theater. While some species hibernate in winter, there's a lot of animals still active in winter and lots to explore! We will hike around the park looking at plants in winter and animal evidence. And each teacher will receive a backpack with supplies to help during winter outdoor explorations! Register online.
