Nature Learning Series

  • Do you feel passionate about students learning outside?
  • Do you use nearby parks & green spaces to inspire student learning?
  • Would you like more resources to connect students with nature?
  • Are you interested in connecting with other educators who are passionate about taking students outdoors?

    … THEN WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU!

In collaboration with community partners, the Learning Team is offering a three-session nature series. This series will allow you to connect and collaborate about nature-inspired projects. You are invited to come and share your stories and hear what others are doing. Resources will be provided and there will be plenty of prizes, including a Go-Pro!
