Monthly Trainings, Seminars & Classes

April ribbon

Learning Together, Teaching One Another (Teaching Resource Day)

Meets: Saturday, April 1, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM, Armstrong Redwoods Volunteer Center/Stewards Office
Instructor(s): You!

This Teaching Resource Day is all about sharing skills, lessons, games, songs, and other fun educational activities with fellow Docents. Plan to bring some thing to share (or maybe a few things). It could have been taught to you, a lesson from a book/internet, or an idea you came up with yourself. Don’t be discouraged if you are new to Environmental Education or feel you don’t have anything to share… come anyway and learn from those more experienced!
