Teacher Workshops

Prior to bringing a class to a ranger guided program, teachers are required to attend a workshop specific to the program their class will be participating in.

Our workshops familiarize new teachers with program opportunities, logistics, and safety considerations. Additionally, workshops set the stage for pre-visit and post-visit classroom activities that allow teachers to provide their students with much more than simply a trip to the park. While not guaranteed, continuing education credit is usually available. Workshops are typically scheduled on Miami-Dade County teacher work days.

If you plan to register your class for a ranger-led program, you can sign up for the corresponding workshop at the same time.

You can attend the workshops even if you are not planning to bring students to the park this year. To register for any of these without a scheduled program, e-mail us with your name, school, grade level, phone number, and which workshop. If you registered online for a ranger-led program and requested a workshop, you do not need to send a separate email.
