Join us for this 2-day workshop that will focus on understanding Alabama’s forest lands, their value and the role they play in maintaining Alabama’s biodiversity. During the workshop, educators will participate in a variety of educational hands-on experiences that teach about our forest lands, that they can take back to the classroom and share with their students and co-workers. We will also share and use resources from a new Project Learning Tree (PLT) Module: Southeastern Forests and Climate Change guidebook (participants will receive a copy). In addition, we will share several learning station ideas/plans, nature-based activities/modules/resources, as well as ideas for Project Based Learning and Citizen Science Projects that can be used in the school’s outdoor classrooms.  (Target Audience: Fifth Grade—High School)
