DNS offers a variety of trainings for teachers. Based on our successful model of providing environmental education for students age K-highschool, we have created curriculum and successful programs that can be incorporated into traditional school settings. We teach workshops using our own model, as well as workshops using Project Wild and Project Learning Tree. The Nature Center is a wonderful place to participate in a training, as it offers a great atmosphere for learning in the outdoors.
As they become available, we will post them here. We would also be happy to design a specific training for your group of teachers. Contact Program Facilitator, Grace Gordon, to discuss this option at firstname.lastname@example.org.
