Current Workshops

  • Bring a workshop to your site!

    Contact Natalie Elkins at to plan a professional development workshop for your center or school staff, neighboring naturalists, preschool educators or camp staff. What a great way to meet the environmental educators in your community, and to build partnerships. WILD workshops each provide a guide, interactive activities that focus on illustrating life science standards, but often involve math, ELA and art too, and sharing new ideas for implementation.

    A workshop needs 12 or more people registered, and can be custom built to meet your groups needs. Professional development workshop choices are: ($35 per person for one guide covered in a workshop, additional $15 for the second)
