China School’s Forest to host

Project Learning Tree Workshops


China School’s Forest will be hosting TWO Project Learning Tree Workshops for adults in April.  Each workshop will feature hands-on activities and lesson ideas for kids ages K-8.   Both workshops will begin with a short introduction to Project Learning Tree and then we will head out into the forest for interactive sessions with trained facilitators. Lessons are interdisciplinary including connections to children’s literature and language arts activities.  If you are an educator (formal or informal), community volunteer, scout leader, naturalist, natural resource professional, land trust member, homeschooling parent or just want to learn some great ways to teach kids about the forest, this workshop is for you.  Workshops are rain or shine so come prepared for the weather.  Sign up by April 8, 2017. Space is limited to 20 participants.

Cost is $50 per participant and includes the Project Learning Tree K-8 activity book with 96 lessons, opportunities to network with resource professionals, tour the award-winning China School’s Forest and gain new skills to make nature learning fun. Make checks payable to: Maine TREE Foundation

Location:  China Primary School, 763 Lakeview Drive, China, ME 04358

Workshop 1- Thursdays, April 13 and 27 (must attend both sessions) from 3pm-6pm
