Join the National Wildlife Federation for a 4-part webinar series designed around our new Schoolyard Habitats® Planning Guide. Our first webinar will be on October 6, 2021 from 3:30 – 4:30 PST. We invite you to join in to hear from a panel of practicing teachers from across the U.S., including Marcia Cardona from Royal Palm Elementary, Miami, FL; Janson Siptak from Bonham Academy San Antonio, TX and Kara Contreras, from Brixner Junior High School, Klamath Falls, OR. These amazing educators will share their knowledge and experience in developing a team, creating community, assessing and designing the site and implementation and maintenance. Q&A with the audience will follow.
Future webinars will dig into topics such as best practices for teaching outdoors and how to expand and maintain your habitat for outdoor learning. Register now for the first webinar.
