Audience: 3rd grade and up, formal and nonformal educators (but educators working with younger students are welcome to join)

Description:  Join us at the Southern Oregon Land Conservancy’s Rogue River Preserve (about 15 miles north of Medford)  to experience and explore nature journaling, a flexible, engaging, and adaptable teaching tool that helps students develop both scientific (NGSS) and social-emotional competencies. Along the trail, we will stop to practice close observation, inquiry, and connection-building using a series of nature journaling prompts. We will also practice giving feedback on journal entries to promote a growth mindset, model outdoor facilitation strategies, and discuss how to incorporate nature journaling in any learning context.

Dress for a 1.5-mile walk along a rustic but mostly-level loop trail. Bring a notebook and a pencil, water, bag lunch, and a camping chair (if you have one).

This workshop is brought to you by: Bureau of Land Management: Medford District, Southern Oregon Land Conservancy and Oregon Natural Resources Education Program (ONREP).

Registration required. Offered at no cost to formal and nonformal Oregon educators. PDUs available. Substitute reimbursement available on teacher workdays.
