Educators who work with students in grades K – 12 are invited to join The Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s “BirdSleuth Educator’s Workshop” at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.  This two hour event will take place at the Paul H. Douglas Center for Environmental Education in Miller, IN, on Sunday, May 7 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.  The workshop is open to both formal and non-formal educators including teachers, pre-service teachers, home-schooling parents, naturalists, scout and youth leaders, and anyone who works with youth in grades K – 12.
During this hands-on session, participants will try out activities and receive resources that will help them get students outdoors and excited about birds. Educational activities explore the qualities of good habitat for birds and other wildlife, promote habitat improvement projects, and encourage active participation in citizen science. Educators will also receive a free bird feeder and “Feathered Friends” activities, and learn about grant opportunities and other resources. There is a $5.00 registration fee and pre-registration is required by April 30.
