Workshops

FREE Teacher Workshops
We have revamped our free teacher workshops for 2022. After hearing from many students and teachers about their concerns around climate change, drought, pollution and wildfire, we know that environmental action projects are more important than ever. Let's work together to empower your students to become agents of change through our fun and engaging projects. Check out the different workshops below!



NGSS by Nature

Service-Learning in the Outdoor Classroom
It’s not time for gloom and doom, it’s time for action! There is no single solution to address climate change, but there are ways we can make small changes to alter our behaviors which are undermining the future of this planet. Join us to explore how project-based learning utilizes Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) to empower students to take action on waste, water and health issues stemming from climate change.
