As an educator, are you looking for ways to infuse conservation into your curriculum?

You're in the right place!

The Teacher Workshops in Conservation Science program focuses on conservation science, and how to inspire a passion for nature in every person you engage with, whether in a formal classroom or informal setting.

This year, we are suggesting that you register with a partner from your school or organization, so that you have built-in support when you want to try new things! At least one person on your team of 2 should teach a life science, the other can teach any subject at all; we welcome cross-curricular teams!

Our program is meant for educators who engage 6th-12th grade students, but is also appropriate for informal educators and undergraduate professors. Even if you don't teach science in a formal setting, this program has something for you and we hope you will register!

The $2,000 registration rate for this residential program includes all meals and lodging for the duration of the workshop, in addition to program fees, special experiences, and materials. We will spend Monday and Tuesday night (July 30th & July 31st) in our fantastic Roar & Snore Safari Classic Tents (https://tinyurl.com/ClassicTents); each tent is outfitted with a cot, a camp chair, several 4-inch sleeping pads, and an electric lantern. Our campground is outfitted with full restrooms and showers, and limited electrical outlets are available if necessary.

You'll find payment information (we accept personal checks and school/district purchase orders) at the end of this form, but first we'd like to learn a little bit more about you!
