This winter, spend two days at Smith Rock State Park for a special training for preschool educators.  The training will increase your confidence and capacity to lead your students in outdoor exploration and learning.  We’ll spend plenty of time engaging in hands-on, interdisciplinary activities, networking with colleagues, and learning about the wealth of community resources for exploring the natural world with young children.  Participants will take home Growing Up Wild and Project Learning Tree’s Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood curriculum.  Graduate credits and PDUs will be available.
