This is an adult only workshop geared towards educators, and is CTLE credit certified. Educators, teachers, and youth leaders learn about two nature-based curriculums: Growing Up WILD and Project Learning's Tree Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood. 

Growing Up WILD is an award-winning environmental education program for early childhood educators, teachers, and youth leaders working with children aged 3 to 7 years old. Activities focus on animals and habitats through games, snacks, crafts, and songs! 

Project Learning's Tree Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood integrates nature-based exploration, art, literature, math, music and movement, and outdoor play into early childhood education settings. The detailed lesson plans outline activities that encourage children to explore, discover, and communicate in expressive ways. This workshop is geared to all educators who work with children aged 3 to 7 years old. Educators who attend, receive the PLT Early Childhood activity guide (including the "Environmental Experiences" CD) with lesson plans and additional resources for Early Childhood instruction.
