Are you looking for new curriculum and activities for the classroom? Do you want to expand your personal knowledge? Look no further, the park offers a variety of workshops and classes for teachers, informal educators and the curious adult.
Relationships in Nature:
The Clatsop Plains are a rich and biologically diverse ecosystem that offers numerous taxa that can be explored, measured and identified from a macro to a micro perspective. Teachers can explore and investigate natural life found in a dunes landscape on the Oregon Coast, now part of Lewis and Clark National Historical Park. Teachers will learn about the rich biological diversity of the Clatsop Plains, as well as participate in hands-on learning, receive curriculum and share ideas. The training focuses on the award-winning Project Wild and Project Learning Tree curricula. The day includes hands-on science, social science, language arts and arts activities that can easily be transferred to the classroom and schoolyard. Target audience: Teachers and informal educators grades 3-8.
Dress for the outdoors on the North Coast, but count on good shelter, snacks and door prizes. Please bring a sack lunch. The workshop is 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Educators will receive Project Wild and Project learning Tree Activity Guides.
The workshop is offered in cooperation with Oregon Natural Resources Education and the National Park Service, at no charge to Oregon educators.
