The 2020 spring workshop will coincide with the week of the original Earth Day, in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, we’ll celebrate by learning more about today’s environment. A highlight of the day will be outdoor hikes in the afternoon, we’ll look for native wildflowers and birds, explore Turkey Marsh and the habitat along the shore of Gull Lake while learning effective techniques for outdoor teaching. Participants will learn about bees, butterflies, pollination, nature journaling, dune ecology and its connection to Michigan history and gain insights and resources to take back to their classrooms and students.
