Teacher Workshops

Teacher Workshop

Teachers learning about the desert tortoise.

We are expanding our education outreach through teacher workshops. The purpose of workshops is to build partnerships with teachers, so they better understand the resources available to them and how to use the park as an outdoor classroom. Contact us if you are interested in being put on a contact list for future teacher workshops.

Here is a list of workshops that we have offered in the recent past:
My Home is the Mojave Desert (February 2012)
Climate Change in the Desert Southwest (September 2013)
