Educator Trek: Nature Journaling in your Nature Neighborhood

  • Saturday, February 26, 2022
  • 9:00am - 5:00pm

Examine ways to share the natural world with your students through nature journaling. Practice various journaling techniques as we explore plants and animals that can be found in most backyards, schoolyards, or local parks. Discover cross-curricular connections through activities that can be used in virtual and in-person classrooms.
