Teacher Workshops

Everglades National Park is proud to employ team teaching for its education programs. In order to prepare teachers to assist with programming, teachers are required to attend a workshop prior to bringing their students on a ranger-guided program.

Teacher Workshops for Royal Palm, Shark Valley and Every Kid in a Park Day Programs will be held on:
October 25, 2019 and November 4, 2019
Hidden Lake Camp and Loop Road Camp Teacher Workshops will be held on:
December 14 & 15, 2019

  • Workshops familiarize new teachers with program opportunities, logistics, and safety considerations.
  • Park staff provide background knowledge and demonstrate activities that can be done in the classroom.
  • The park works with Miami-Dade County Public Schools to provide professional development credit and can verify participation for teachers from other counties.
  • Workshops are typically scheduled on Miami-Dade teacher work days or on weekends.
  • You will sign up for the workshop when registering your class for a ranger-led program.

Teachers are welcome to attend workships even if they are not planning on bringing students to the park this year. To register for a workshop without a scheduled program, e-mail us with your name, school, grade level, phone number, and the workshop you wish to attend.
